gavel

pronounce it anyway you like

accent or not

it has been served up

as a pig’s head on a platter

indecorously

Wielded like a four letter word

between the sheets

as a man takes what is “his”

forcefully

Falls with steel-like force

in one swift move

obliterating life in its path

sharply

Is bandied about

by men who think they know

something about the law

arrogantly

Fails to meet the mark

for the common man

the one who needs it the most

discriminatingly

In days when it is needed the most, where has it flown???
