The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died

Who is this one who cannot speak?
She is a vegetable, of no use in this world of power and utility

The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died

Forget the smile; it has no productive value, disregard the mothers’ plea, misguided sentiment

The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died

The one on the bench, the blind guide leading the blind, has the power now in this brave new world unanchored from truth; his word is the sword

The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died

All this talk of religion and solidarity be damned, let the one who cast the bride aside decide

The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died

The triumph of the Will ascends, the meek and the weak shudder, the reign of lawlessness begins

The Rule of Law they cried…while Terri Died
