An eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth
are popular politics.
are cornered by opposition
and media sentinels
even in decisions like capital punishment.
A fresh bout of meaningless retributions.
This is the pitfall of democracy.
Democracy or mobocracy?
Right-thinking people are less.
They are overpowered always
by greedy, streetwise, noisy masses
They will suffer no doubt.
Most times we do not know what is good for us.
We do our own undoing.
History therefore is a series of human foibles.
We must therefore have God to protect us.
