Is justice served?

What separates a human from a beast
both have instinct
one tells lies
other doesn't know what lie is
and is sacrificed
world watches in disbelief
at the injustice
realizing it's politics
where the beast is sworn as Justice
believe it or not, that Just is

reminding me of George Orwell
"some are more equal than others"
in the Animal Kingdom
