Poetic Side: Lawyers – Bolaji Ramos

0

Dead liars!
Fucking twisters!
Advocatus diaboli!

And like doctors
They too can call the dead the living;
Call the mute the singing!

Like accountants
They too can twist the wrist of numbers;
Twist the fist of books and papers!

Like engineers
They too can build Burj Khalifa in the thin air;
Build Atlantis with just a glare!

Like politicians
They too can promise democracy in kakistocracy;
Promise an octogenarian an infancy!

Like marketers
They too can make and mar merchandise;
Make and mar thy awaited paradise!

Like legislators,
They too can birth legal fictions;
Birth new pronouns for gender-neutrals!

Like scientists,
They too can deny nothing exists beyond science (of law);
Deny existence of Omnipresence (and His lore)

Lawyers are really naught,
But struggling individuals fraught
With many frailties and faults
Just like doctors

accountants
engineers

politicians
marketers

legislators
scientists
commoners,

Feeding the world from the dish of untruths.

— Bolaji S. Ramos
