Celebration: World Day for International Justice

The Common Law and Equity

The common law is male
Equity is female.
Each needs the other
For justice to be in order.

The common law is lame
Without equity’s fame.
Equity’s a piece of nonsense
Without common law’s presence.

When the conflicts arise,
Equity should stand tall
But upon the common law.
Both make justice rise.

The common law and equity
What a wonderful blend!

Topic of the Day: Disneyland

17 July 1955: Disneyland is dedicated and opened by Walt Disney in Anaheim, California

The Dream Goal

I once was playing soccer and scored a goal
it went through the net after hitting the pole
all of the fans were yelling and screaming
for a second there I thought I was dreaming
then went off the cheerleaders and the band
I went in front of the camera and said, ' I'm going to Disneyland.'

About poetry

Charles Baudelaire

There exist only three beings worthy of respect: the priest, the soldier, the poet. To know, to kill, to create.

Wang Wei

Pleasures of Fields and Gardens

Spring a tangle of wildflowers and grasses lush and fragrant,
summer cool shade beneath thick pines towering everywhere:

oxen and sheep return on their own, wandering village lanes,
and for children here, robes of high office don't mean a thing.

Geometry

A circle
comes complete
with its
own grave.

The Mouse on the Barroom Floor

Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor
when the pub was shut for the night.
Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse
and stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor,
then back on his haunches he sat.
And all night long you could hear him roar,
'Bring on the goddam cat!'
