Tallahassee - Poem by James McLain

This lock from hell I could be framed, atone.
Unknown to they the human race must run.
In Tallahassee, names, and games astound it.
No gentleman with honor would sit without it.
It by they is always thought out methods sure.
Lawyers make up language no one understands.
A womans honor to her husband be secured.
There laws, though some are made from fear.
a Shepard of thine sheep they only flock are mocked.
Using fear to keep our virtue safe,
and under lock and throw away the key.
Schools costs to much and guards come cheap.
By they I breath and live I fear to be alone.
But now to bring the matter home.
Some there spouses, knew, lived long to roam.
With good men always coming, some turn bad.
And then comes infection the law is raped.
And babies thrown away my life they take.
They have learned the Roman creed to ape.
English law presumed it once, I do not know.
But all of this is fallow when each chair is vain.
My love always once knew their end to gain.
That god will not insure my unjust cause.
He still protects the Righteous, keep his laws.
For he has given unto me your art.
And can't refuse me any thine, your hearts.
