The funny thing about justice.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The funny thing about Justice.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Imagine the uproar,
And the weight of the law,
If 96 coppers,
Lay dead on the floor.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The law could not stand this,
This terrible day,
The people who caused it,
Would be locked safe away.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The blame would be total,
And the sentence so raw,
The guilty would feel the,
Long arm of the law.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The papers would say things,
Bout’ those brave lads in blue,
How did ‘they’ cause this?
I haven’t a clue.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 They were 96 heroes,
And shouldn’t have died,
At least with our Justice,
We’ll avenge their sweet lives.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Justice is needed,
And justice is right,
And justice is the reason,
We won’t give up the fight.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 We lost our brothers,
Our Sisters and Dad’s
And our Mother’s and Uncles,
And Friends that we had.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Yet as strange as it seems,
For that terrible day,
The justice we seeked,
Just eroded away.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 We never saw Justice,
Like those brave boys in blue,
To me it seems wrong,
Does it to you?

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 By Mike Nicholson.

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Dedicated to the 96′ men, women and children who went to Hillsborough on the 15th April 1989, and never came home.
