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.
