Poem 'Justice'
Life has slipped away, taken, suddenly But why? Did he turn against his own Flee from battle? Now sins to atone

Witnessed by his comrades, Each now perhaps, ashamed , Questions, answers Who to be blamed,

He hangs, suspended, Life ended , No more to wander The hills of his birth Share a dram, a joke A moment of mirth.

Shall he be missed , His loved one to kiss no more, Perhaps he had intended, When the fighting was done To sail to foreign shore?

Let us depart, this scene Of death , Did he cry "Justice" With his last breath?

Written by Dave Wilkie - It is an eerie scene indeed A life taken, but did he deserve To die like this? Only God knows.
