burro-cracy

the security guard
couldn’t find my name
in the book
of contractors
he kept eyeballing me
up and down
my tools
were particularly
menacing
as my nefarious scheme
to loosen
all the screws and bolts
in the building
in an effort
to take the law
into my hands
piece by piece
brick by brick
until
i could rebuild
the edifice of law
into my own
less than sterling
image
it is a good thing
lady justice
is blind
like the idiocy
of burrocrats
and paid muscle
that’s enough justice
for me
for one day
i have sights to see
