the L word

that's L as in Lawyers and the Legal system.
God grant me the serenity to not damn them all.
do not ever come afoul of the law.
or, God forbid, the people that you love;
because if you should ever have to enter the court system
then read the sign over the door
(the same as the supposed inscription at the entrance to hell.)
as in: Dante's Divine Comedy.

Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:.....
.....All hope abandon ye who enter here.
keep your mouth shut
keep your eyes open
expect nothing
don't ask questions
don't ask for explanations
the law is unto itself
just sit down and shut up
and wait till it's over

when?
it's NEVER over.
