Judges and lawyers of all courts of all times will be judged one time in one court to be judged for the way they judged others. The accused in the photograph above the poem is Mordechai Vanunu, Israelian nuclear scientist.
Trial of the Truth
Surrounded by the sons of the dark
The lawless ruling this forged court
Whose lost souls bear evil’s mark
Certifying that justice is ignored
While Truth sits silent and serene
Awaiting proclamation of a verdict
Based on lies and evidence unseen
Attempting to resolve the conflict
Between the treacherous and true
That resides within me and you
The court’s ruling was set before
This counterfeit tribunal begun
Warily devised to harshly gore
At all clarity beneath the sun
The law of man is but a sword
In the homicidal hands of evil
Gathered in this sinister court
Impatient to mercilessly fulfill
Prophecies of an ancient past
To satisfy evil’s ravenous zest
With cuffed hands and feet
Truth was summoned to rise
To hear the sentence decreed
Conjured by hate and despise
Seeing how prosecutors raged
Spilling their odium all over Truth
Leaping like a monster uncaged
Fuming like an unforgiving sleuth
‘How do you plead, miserable fool?
Why did you defy darkness’ rule?’
Truth did not speak in its defence
In the face of vicious and filthy lies
Veiled in false sense and arrogance
Capable only of treason and demise
‘Judge me in any way you see fit
I reject the authority of your law
If you want to hang me, so be it
No sentence will undo your flaw
Do whatever you feel you must do
The one on trial in this room is you’

|A real poet. You are a gifted being.

|Without question, one of the greatest tragedies of any historical era is the empowerment of curruption and the abuse of justice. THE TRIAL OF TRUTH is a potent reminder that there are higher laws and courts not so easily given to manipulation as those established by society. A powerfully provocative and spiritually insightful poem.

|To be a judge is an honor towards the wisdom of this judge. Pity is when the judge doesn't judge with wisdom but with that of a fool. Do we just say OOPS then when law hangs in the balance?! Who is accountable for the judges but those who set them there in the first place.

The corrupt and evil dispensers of dark justice will be judged once, and once only by the Great Judge on the Day of Reckoning

|In my opinion, the judge's decisions are final and any country, unlesss there is ground for an appeal; but the judges should not be judged for their decisions, for the whole country would get confused.
A judge's decision SHOULD BE final; and should not be brought out to judge by another judge of same level. How confusing this is!
But then again, the above is just my personal opinion about law in any countries.
