Don't Even Start

"Wrongdoing" is a useless word when law
Enforcers kill and torture, when the bank
Which has been robbed has fleeced its
Customers for years, when hackers find
That they've been hacked, and pious
Human rights defenders peddle arms
To dictators. The priest who thunders,
"Gays can't marry" buggers helpless
Choir boys. "Wrongdoing" is a useless
Word. "Hypocrisy" is not.
