The Law Is An Ass

So you heard the acclaim, friend
Of the double attributes of the self-same ass

Inside the Halls of Justice
Robed judges and murderers wield war
Coded in tacit technicalities
Worded in discreet Latin and English
The ass carries the baggage of man:
crimes, punishment,
remedy, redress
It pulls cart of victim’s plea

But when the ass rebels it kicks
It is no respecter of persons
Paupers and kings
Lawyers and citizens
All drawn within
The radius of the incensed ass
So you are right, friend,
That the law is an ass
But if I may hazard
Why is your breath foul and incestuous mouthing ass
Intoned with twice as much a derogation as of an expletive?
