Law v. Gay Love – Courts of InJustice, 1967

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.
