The difference between vengeance (payback)

And justice defined by a sentence (objectivity)

Punishment is so often reasoning

Remaining strong without weakening


Guidelines rules the line in the sand

Determined individually, a demand

Collectively sought by said officials

Hopefully endorsed as beneficial


For all the human race as a whole

That should be our ultimate goal

Freedom of expression here and now

This should be our basic vow
