Bolaji Ramos,Esq

If justice can be carted away on a platter of gold

And repaid with a moribund emerald,
Then let Law swallow its loquacious pride—
Let the rays of the sun drop its shines
Let the glitters of the moon hands down
And let the twinkles of the stars un-twinkle its prickles.

At the marketplace of ignominy
Law traded its most valuable destiny—
A penny paid in exchange for quashing mutiny
A hominy given in exchange for shrinking felony
A litany offered in erasure of criminal sanctimony

Mutiny for a penny
Felony for a hominy
Sanctimony for a litany

Justice is the end, the fabrics and destiny of Law
If criminality can be bargained to legality—
A poplar will soon turn an undergrowth
A mountain will soon turn a rock
An ocean will soon turn a river
A tree will soon turn a stalk
An imago to a pupa
A pupa to a larva
A larva to an egg
An egg to an atom

And what is left of Law is a shadow of its true self.

Mutiny for a penny
Felony for a hominy
Sanctimony for a litany

–Bolaji Ramos,Esq.
