Is Justice Served

Though well paid lawyers do not lie
They do manipulate the truth.
That’s why the fees they charge are high
They’re able to discredit proof
They can change certainty to doubt
by challenging the evidence.
Convince the judge to rule things out
that would endanger the defence.
They search for technicalities
to circumvent the rule of law.
Their specialised abilities
are what we pay top dollar for.
One question though must still remain.
Do they conceal the truth for gain?
