The Law

The law is nothing more than a word;
Not binding,
Not final,
Not judging,
Nor right.

The law is nothing more than a sentiment;
No meaning,
No commitment,
No vow,
No right nor wrong.

The law is nothing;
Torture is now legal,
Robbery likewise,
Looting and murder,
Burglary, beatings.

The law;
A one-night stand with justice,
A manipulation of interpretation,
A prorogation of common sense,
A mirage to be ignored.

This is the law.
