is brought on his knees.
it raises to the heights.
the scourge of society.
the exemplar of mankind.
One empowers him that faces
the status quo that devours so readily
the minds of men.
One, crippled, trampled under
the status quo that imprisons twice readily
the bodies of men.
One engulfs the heart in flames unquenchable
blazing high toward singular sentiment.
One envelops the flesh in bastille inescapable
sinking low to fathomless
excrement detriment betterment.
Suffix severs not one from the other;
the onus belongs to guilt or true innocence
yet determined – confined – in tribunal’s conference.
