My Honourable Law Lord is also flesh and blood
The bearer of Liberty touch and Themis’ sword.
He swore the oath to always uphold the Word
But to err is human, so he too may break a cord.
So when My Lord sits in his podium up high
He too feels the sting of betrayals and a lie.
But My Lord must labour to postpone his own sigh
And fend for justice that fairness may fly.
My Honourable Law Lord is also blood and flesh
The bearer of the Scales that thrash and thresh
He too often has his head drowned in a plash and plesh
Like a slippery fish that may be caught in a mesh.
So when My Lord sits to reflect in his chamber
He too is as fallible as any man in his wake or slumber.
A little emotion may sway his reasoning astray
Or a little heartbreak that arrests him as a prey.
—Bolaji Ramos, Esq.
