http://www.keele.ac.uk/depts/as/Literature/Bierce/devilsdic2.html, it's the only thing I can think of to say today. Perhaps we could say the same thing, with Lady Liberty playing the role of Mercy?Quoted from |
Once Law was sitting on the bench,
And Mercy knelt a-weeping.
"Clear out!" he cried, "disordered wench!
Nor come before me creeping.
Upon your knees if you appear,
'Tis plain your have no standing here."
Then Justice came. His Honor cried:
"Your status? - devil seize you!"
"Amica curiae," she replied -
"Friend of the court, so please you."
"Begone!" he shouted - "there's the door -
I never saw your face before!"
