fair and unfair

beauty is fair, justice is fair
yet one is oval shaped and one is square
so fair an unfair circular world
where from the land we claim to share
seeds of greed sprout their leaves

beauty is fair, justice is fair
yet one is clothespinned,
the other drifting through the air
blind and bare
one is scarce, the other found everywhere
so even an uneven disappearing land
shrinking as rapidly as our courage
to mold the surplus
to the deficit
and shape a fairer fairer world of this.
