I know of many lawyers who are very quick to quote
the words of famous jurists in decisions that they wrote.
They are those who live their lives by rules of precedent
maybe that’s why the future goes the way the past has went...
Ignorance of the law can’t be used as a defense
but those with knowledge of it can assault all common sense.
Some utilize the system to free truly evil men
then revel in celebrity that generates from them.
The truth is a collection of all facts and evidence
the lawyer is a filter and justice a coincidence.
The law has loopholes through which some men can escape
as it catches others by the neck untill it snaps and breaks.
