Promise And The Outlaw - Poem by douglas scotney

Promise preceded the law,
Watched over the rise of law,
Replaced the law.

Not that it's still not the case
That if you don't misbehave
You'll still be following the law,
But the law was never what was all.

Promise is saviour
Releases us from misbehaviour
Which we cannot release at all.

We live under law.
Proof of the existence of promise,
Will be the existence of life without law.
