A Maori Prince Above The Law - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

New Zealand as middle earth promoted
due to Sir Peter Jackson 'Lord Of The Rings'!
all filmed in New Zealand spectacular movies
Hobbit movies now on the agenda filmed

but in the realm of citizenship rights
political many rings circle to define rights
there is no 'one law to rule them all'
poor people lacking privilege in court fall

drive drunk steal prison is your sentence?
Surely one law for all races must apply?
Reverse racism in New Zealand cannot deny?

Maori King Tuheitia's youngest son free escaped
punishment for crimes drink driving burglary theft
because it would his succession to throne impact?

Is one law to rule them all required?
