RULE OF LAW!

RULE OF LAW!

Who makes the rule, rules the law.
What rule, what law, what rule of law?
The rich and powerful make the laws.
The rich and powerful apply the rules,
That use the law to keep the wretched,
The pitiful, and the poor, powerless.

Once, there were laws making Slavery legal,
Whose rules made escape from Slavery,
Dangerous, impossible, and maybe lethal.
When laws are unjust and inhuman,
Rules upholding such unjust laws,
Are just tools to uphold the status quo.
