The Man Attested - Poem by Randy McClave

There was a man who once attested
That he would not ever be arrested,
By any law that is enforced by brutality or force
Their beliefs he would never support or endorse,
Behind every law there is power and a stench
And without that power there wouldn't be a fence,
Any law or justice with brutality is corruptible and bad
That is the same power and strength that evil also had,
If a man must rely on strength or a weapon to enforce any law
From my presence I wish for him and his laws to withdraw,
If a judge or anyone relies on force to enforce their every word
That law and their power and them I would say is absurd,
If they need the backing of a gun to give them power to speak
What is the different between the criminal who threatens the weak,
He screamed and preached that he would never go to prison or jail
A place by force, were people are sent and where weapons also prevail.
