Justice Stew

A somber, righteous friend of mine
is all about justice; he seriously
has it nailed what with Holy Week
just passing from view. I’m about
justice, too, but there is always
some irony, hypocrisy, satire, juxta-
position, contradiction, opposition,
like stone soup, in the justice stew.
And so, I will march to the memory
of Martin Luther King, Jr. as we
approach the 50th anniversary of
his death while, forgive me, think-
ing of a silly limerick or maybe
more than just a few. I’m foolish
enough to think the good reverend
doctor would have enjoyed more than
just a chuckle or two.
