when there is no justice
the half blind will lead
here hobbling there dragging
in the name of progress
of promise made
of promises kept
of promises delivered

when there is no justice
the racist will show itself
pointing here pointing there
in the name of rights
of my rights
of our rights
of our entitlement

when there is no justice
the tongue  will spew venom
half screeching half screaming
in the name of justice
of belonging
of owning
of birth rights

years upon years
the same old song
passed down
and passed along
songs of corruption
of lies and deceit
of force enforced
a country broken
a nation burdened
a people angered

when there is no justice
promises unmade
promises unkept
promises undelivered
when there is no justice.
