Render Justice

(Image Source: http://en.wikipedia.org)


Helplessly witness,
Terrorism sans boundary,
Floating in the dark.

Retaliation,
Render belated justice,
Condemn the monsters.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Render.

  2. Justice is a weird thing. Sometimes it makes a monster of those who seek it. I like this because it makes me pause and think. So simple on the surface and yet... not at all.

  8. I agree with She Writes. Retaliation is more apt to give birth to hatred than to justice.

    1. I agree with your views Patti, but retaliation will also send out a strong message to the world of terrorism. It's high time that these need to be checked !!!

  11. had me thinking of Osama Bin....I cannot wrap my head around terrorism or raw justice, and I am glad I can't! Seriously, all war is terrorism - who should be punished?

    1. That's a serious question you have posed, one which can't be answered. Terrorism is a big dark mark on the human society, but isn't it the society that gave rise to terrorists in the first place?

    1. The ill fated date of 9/11 does come to mind when we talk of terrorism. There have been widespread increase of terror attacks all round the globe, something that needs to be checked !!!
