Lawyers Make Silly Poets July 4, 2007

Posted by Janjan in All, Seriously now….

 Motion for Ratification

 are mornings such a crime that
this purple-passioned rage
should be penalized so?
grant these slanderous words forebearance
there was no criminal intent,
no mens rea that you should thwart me so

i implead you
the wheretofores and such and such
there was no criminal intent

i move with averments to cradle the soul
i ask reprieve for
the excesses which mark our vinculum
the broken juridical tie

would that you had the foresight
i warrant, herein lie hidden defects
but i guarantee the consideration is worth more…
much more than you believe it to be

grant me forebearance,
grant me the wounds i have cradled in my sleep
would that you would novate, ratify
and cure all inherent defects

you would bless us, more than you know
