A poem from Cashel: Tales of the emigres
If you subject Love to the common law
-No matter what the judgment you intend-
You make uncommon Love a common whore
An outcome which no lawyer aught defend.
If Law declares a crime where Love presides,
Love’s dignity‘s not lost in legal shame:
Shame’s slander with the l libelous Law resides
If honest Love dares not to speak its name.
Abusing competence of Statue Law
(Subjecting Love to false imprisonment)
Is one injustice, Justice should abhor;
An Act, from which, just judges aught dissent.
Blind justice may try whatever you have done;
But Love will tell you what is right or wrong.
