(“Hi Dr. Kroeze!”)

once described The Law

as a picket fence

a barrier

against the world

not as much to protect

the within from the without

but as a clear border

standing at the demark

where within ended

and without began


and what of me,

alive in this age

of scandalous freedom

it does me good to know

it stands firm and perfect

though the dust of ages

be violent hurled against it

I stand within its bounds

and find comfort
