ROYAL WORCESTER
 

In this world

we must handle injustice like fine china

it must be kept safe from our fancy appliances

washed by hand

dried with a linen towel

packed in bubble wrap
 

In the next world

injustice will be flung aside

each child will receive a place setting of unfairness

to smash against the pearly gates
 

God tosses a gravy boat to an eager toddler.

He does not count the cost.
