Needs satisfied are needs unfelt
Flowers in bud are flowers unsmelt.
Hues in darkness – hues undistinguished
Lights under bushels – lights extinguished.
Things to come are things unreckoned
The unexpected: the unbeckoned.
Money unpaid: money unspent
By instalments: not price but rent.
Rights unclaimed are rights abolished
House undwelt-in: house demolished.
Threats ignored are threats defied
Justice delayed is justice denied.
Crimes unreported: crimes unowned
Crimes unrecorded: crimes condoned.
Lies unchallenged: lies admitted
Sentence escaped is sentence remitted.
