the man in charge

the man in charge 
    doesn’t know 
how to forgive. 
    that’s one of the 
really big necessities -- 
    forgiving 
      and 
    accepting 
   forgiveness. 
                life 
can’t move on. 
   it’s stuck at the 
revenge place 
        and goes  
                   falsely 
by the name 

      “justice,” 

when it only leads 
to self-justifying,
              
    “sacred” violence 
which is 

profanity and retributive justice 
        but
not restorative justice.  

there is no justice;
there is just death 
in one form or another -- 
      
    and THIS is 

the man in charge.
