The black flag


image

A thunder cloud overhead
Roaring with evil laughter
Breathes at the black flag
That flutters ominously
In stark contrast
To the red brick fort
That upholds the onerous weight of justice

The black flag betokens
A duty bound execution
Bespeaks of captivity,
Conviction,
Blinkered justice

It continues waving in deafening silence
Disclosing the denouement of the parable
Desensitizing judicature into
A blind barbarous game
Of punitive retribution
