Too Great A Burden

Steps outside the old Butler County Courthouse in Ohio.

and so the masses of misery,
tears, and venomous spit
eroded the crowded path to justice
with heavy feet and stomped-upon hearts
these burdened souls
carrying pain up and down
back and forth,
angry and defeated,
cycling maliciously
until splintered,
the steps to justice
