Reflections of a Law Student

We departed in two unequal files
One qualification, two destinations

The idealist
Feeling one step
Closer to the truth
Went forth
Strengthened in her resolve
To lend spirit to the letter
Of the law

While the Cynic
Armed with newfound skills
Determined to make a fortune
By going forth
To find the most legal ways
Of breaking the law.

As we left to take our place
On the Stage of Human Affairs
Others came in to play their part
On this tour of duty
To a land where
At least for a while,
They could dream
Of peace and justice
Talk of law and order
And discuss hopes
Of changing the world
Some day.
