The Legacy Of Law - Part One -


Law began by living,
locomotion meeting the rails of electric rainfall,
Consequence coursing through interconnected crossbeams
making all form fruit of the first & final recipe,
one great statute spawned from the storm
billowing from Divinity's genius,
everything in the Universe existing to produce,
get busy, get bounce'n, grow wild & now,
receive with wisdom and take as thieves humbled by offering,
the original impulse from a manic God
pregnant from androgonous purpose,
a trillion movements in a single start, a fanatic for feral smarts,
stagnation anethema to the spectacular suspense of survival,

Natural Rights were for me
the moment my blood became mine, became a wet warlord
exerting presence in the wide open wrestle of Universe,
God the shadow & weight of my spark,
the window & scene of my good gumption, of my dusty dream,
self defense a mandate from the magistrate of my heritage,
freedom of expression an obligation humming from ancestors'
anniverseries applauded along the Appain Way headed
not towards Rome but forward to a higher home of honor,

a Law unto myself I am,
eating from the spines of lions,
sleeping atop pyramids built by a billion bones unbroken by battle,
afternoons auction affection for my amusement with discount
and the nights nudge nightmares asunder
with the release of red lightning
spelling the name of Creation in raw neon, breathtaking breakdown,
a script scribbled by a hand having the blueprint of dirt in it's fingernails,
I appeal to Adam, attest in favor of aggression's willpower,
to Eve I beseech, testify to the severity & sanction of self confidence,
let us smash all false law that stands as a wall to our fulfillment,
smack the eggshell of Man's authoritarian angst,
waking into a world of wakeful worries, confined by Common Law, U.C.C.,
walking through waves ment to wreck the arrogant
with a constitution inked by nerves electrified
by entertaining the urgency of a rampaging God,
thought of the great expanse thumping thoroughly through
the expeditions my expectations encounter,
black static undulating around the blue bulb of my brain,
sparks of ultimate consciousness mothering marks of miracles
in the becoming of birthright,


J.A.B.

    Hello Justin, I haven't been up to much lately. However, i like the thought of you basing the law unto yourself. I call this poem full knowledge. I will re-read the second part again... LOL, i read part 2 first... I don't know why my mind works backwards at times... always~ Linda

    Your mind is amazing PD., I'm sure it works miracles in all directions - happy you agree with me on such a vital point - law should always begin and end with the individual soul in concert with the greater consciousness/soul of Deity - your compliment is inspiring, 'Full Knowledge..', wow! Thanks! - J.A.B. %

    What an interesting piece you've composed. Really insightful stuff here. We write our own laws and beliefs and live on them. I love the line " let us smash all false law that stands as a wall to our fulfillment" Actually, the entire last stanza was very powerful to me on this first half of the poem. ---Hey thanks for reading my work. It's great to receive some feedback and encouragement. You are really kind.

    Kindness is a lovely pleasure Laura - one more reason not to implement legal codes that attempt to dictate how people shall experience life and potentially take their wages, property, or even place humans into cages - strange society - strange obedience - 'law' achieveched via coercment or violence is awfully strange -Thanks Laura - J.A.B. %
