Through her blindfold

The old men sat around a table

until the day she was born

a beautiful goddess
her gushing golden curls
resting on the pure white robes
draped around her pale body

she was a masterpiece

she asked all of the questions
and knew all of the answers
as she kept the world in balance

and oh,
was she grand
as she held the scale of the universe
in her fingertips

armed with a double-edged sword
she was the demise
of every evil she encountered

but in all her glory
the old men knew
she was imperfect
flawed by preconception

so after much deliberation
they wrapped a cloth around her eyes
exchanged smug looks
and finally walked away
setting her free into the world

that Lady Justice could see
through her blindfold
