To fail in one point of the law
we have failed in all, human
condition demands, the absolute
need of a merciful mediator
to defend our humble petition
broken and contrite before
the bench of justice, condemned
a mortal, innocent, outside of time
we risked a forbidden presence
prodigal instinct and unclear purpose
unaware, we wander, stumble astray
na´ve we create our illusory world
to justify and hypnotize ourselves.
