Crime & Punishment

Justice is forgiveness 
it is surely heard
in the bishop's song
to the con Jean Valjean;

for the brave melody
he sings to the cops 
that climbs like a prayer 
is the same sung by Javert:

the restless pursuer,
that relentless judge
who sorely assumed
justice equals judgment.

And justice surely does.
But where does it lie,
this judgment? On the
back of a thief or a

Priest? And who possesses
the privilege to try
and to deal out death
but God and God Himself?
