Rules - Poem by Theorem The Truth Serum

There are rules everywhere you go
There are rules written on a piece of paper
There are rules that are not followed
There are rules that are stretched and by passed
because of a simple technicality
that was set in place
Why are there ways to getting around
laws that have been setup
That is why I feel that most laws
have been made to be broken
Many laws are made so that the poor stay poor
They can't afford a lawyer to get past the loopholes
They can't afford the fine with three kids
That means that they can end up in jail
Their kids don't deserve to see their parent go to jail
He's no worse than the rich man who just got off
because he could afford a lawyer
It's just not fair
