‘Who would have thought?’

Who would have thought

That courts would be shut?

And a narrative emerge

Which no one would rebut?

Law books locked at home?

While batons, belts and badges

Are encouraged to roam?

When something called COVID

Has made all media go mute

And even the wise look stupid


The Lady of Justice is blind

She can’t even see her sword

Her services are at a price

Which the public can ill afford …
