The End of Rule of Law

I liked the time when we had laws

Which folks mostly followed because

Nature, they say,

Works one basic way:

Red both in teeth and in claws.

Envy’s a sin, it’s been said,

It really can mess with your head,

And we can foresee

How’s life’s going to be:

The living will envy the dead.

Masque of the Red Death

The elites were having a ball,

When a masked figure came in the hall;

The dying Prince yelled,

“…And the Red Death held

Illimitable dominion over all.”
