“Others say, others say/ Law is no more.”

Others say, Law is our Fate;
Others say, Law is our State;
Others say, others say
Law is no more.
Law has gone away.

And always the loud angry crowd,
Very angry and very loud,
Law is We,
And always the soft idiot softly Me.

— excerpt from W. H. Auden’s “Law Like Love”
