A Miscarriage of Justice

Another Belief Contradicted.

Dogma eyeballing forgiveness.

Gray highlighted in Jena,

Kindness lamented more.

None opposing prejudice,

Quelling reform.

Six turbulent, unheralded victims

Waiting xenium,

Yarrow zephyrs.

Slouching Mom challenged her readers at large to compose a poem consisting of 26 words, each beginning with a consecutive letter of the alphabet. As I have been thinking of the grotesque miscarriage of justice being carried out under the radar in a Louisiana court, I began to concoct my own word soup. I am not a poet, but I am willing to broaden my writing horizons.
A couple of explanations:

A xenium is a gift.

Yarrow is an herb that means healing.
