THE SCALES ARE EVEN

"I detest your judgement; it's a blot on 4Dharma Devatha 
A clear case of partiality and an instance of ignorance 
When the accused shared the booty equally, claiming 5samanata 
Why dissimilar sentences to the same crime in your governance ?

The first, as admitted, is a teacher rich in mind, but perverted 
The second, a merchant ready to sell scruples like any article 
The last, a seasoned burglar past any power to be converted 
Yet, all joined to empty the temple hundi sans moral principles.

But you gave a mild reprimand to that teacher immoral 
Ordered payment of a hige sum by the merchant as penalty 
And public fllogging to the buglar, I say it's abnormal 
For each played his role equally well in that criminality.

"You are exactly right in your observation upto this point 
Your imputation of prejudice, or error to my verdict 
Dear prince, is baseless and reflects a mind out of joint 
So listen with care and think well before you contradict.
