As good as their word?

We needed something done.  The guy shows up, shows his credentials, gets paid and does the job.  IT'S BEAUTIFUL!  Two months later, we noticed that the job he did is leaning to the point that it's about to fall over.  He returns, puts a band-aid on it, and signs a paper to return when the weather gets better and do it right.  That was two years ago.  We took him to court three months ago, AND WON!  He was given two weeks to return our money.  We haven't seen or heard from him since, nor can we find him!!

What good is it to even try

if nothing will be done?
We took the legal steps required
and, our case, we won!!
Victory was months ago
but money we've not seen!  
If nothing will be done, then tell me
what does "Contract" mean?!
We both signed on the dotted line
but now, he can't be found!!
Back in MY day, a 'signature'
and everything was bound!
No longer is 'integrity'
a fabric of our being,
and such as this, unfortunately,
more and more we're seeing!
For I couldn't treat a customer
this way and sleep at night!!
Does anybody understand
the gravity of my plight?!
If we can't trust the law to follow
through on verdicts found,
then God help every one of us--
for this is shaky ground!!

"Momma said there'd be days like this..."  Even God warned us of such times!  Go through all the proper 'legal' channels to get something done right, and the aforementioned person continues to advertise and do business??  GOD HELP US!
