"Cardinal Laws of Balance," a poem inspired by the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh...

Cardinal Laws of Balance
©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

Only in America,
Will you find a heart— Blind
To respect the Flesh of another kind,
To respect the Spirit of another kind,
To respect the Morals of another kind,
To respect the Cardinal ways
Of an anguished heart,
That will never part
The Cardinal ways of the Divine Will—

As my devout quill
Speaks to the hollow souls of mankind,
Let us not be blind to justice.
For open thine eyes to see
The Cardinal Laws of Balance
That Lady Justice shall bring.

Let us sing, in unison, to deliver
The anguished soul
To its final resting place,
To bring about equality
On matters of Gender, Race
And Free Will.

For the will of thou flesh
Shall thrive to do its best,
In its conquest for success,
But shall not prey upon
The flesh of another kind!
