  Indictment

for his past
present
and ahead of his future
man, human

hark
who is there
carry out the sentence
retribution
none?

only arbitrators
and abraded
consumed
decapitated
victims

too mutilated
for vendetta
or to produce
shrill cries
for justice
which could atone

only nature
awaits dispensation
telling us
in many languages
how soon
but not when

just wait
