ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LAW: THE BEAUTIFULLY UGLY PART OF IT by Prince Michael Senyo Glover

I thought I was all-powerful, until I found out how eye-opening the world could be;

I thought I was brilliant as Dell, but the Law, tough as well.

I hated it, I never wanted it, yet I was pushed into it;

It was scary: my sound sleep left me;

I persisted, too many years had it kept me;

My books, my notes, the cases, the statutes, the Constitutional provisions, all became nightmares;

I couldn’t sleep for more than a third hour: yet I felt I had ‘the power’;

I was apotheosized: my image was enlarged over its size;

The outsider knelt when I stood: this he never understood;

The Grundnorm Theory was my Goosebumps story.

My food  became a scarecrow, I couldn’t even finish a spring roll;

Oh Law! Why did you downplay my potential?

Oh Lord! Why did you leave me unsubstantial?

Oh Law! Oh Lord!! Where was my breathing space?

I struggled to find my niche,

ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LAW!

I came; I thought; I saw…

ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LAW.
