Enlarge poem

This poem is set in a court of law, and the trial is between God and an unidentified creature of sorts, the jury is comprised of other creatures. It seems God is accusing the creature of wrongdoing and the jury without investigating the evidence deems the creature of wrongdoing, echoing the sentiments of God. This poem is commentary on how certain institutions and individuals have appointed themselves as Gods, with limitless power, and no one holds them accountable. The poet seems to be eluding to the fact that these misuse of power will continue if the rest of society is fearful to point fingers and hold these people accountable, fearful to present a just verdict to the court of law. She urges people to stop echoing what authorities say without questioning the legitimacy.
