The Hidden Law

4.96   (28 votes)

The Hidden Law does not deny

Our laws of probability,

But takes the atom and the star

And human beings as they are,

And answers nothing when we lie.

 

It is the only reason why

No government can codify,

And verbal definitions mar

 

Its utter patience will not try

To stop us if we want to die;

If we escape it in a car,

If we forget It in a bar,

These are the ways we're punished by
