I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways to not succeed.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

Order at the stands
Raise one of your hands
Promise to not lie
When you start to testify
So you can keep some friends

Call to the witness
Raise some suspicion
Explain his crime
Waste some time
Don’t know if anyone listens

Do not try to worry
Just listen to the jury
They call the shot
On what they thought
What is the correct story

But the judge rather hides
From a witness’ bribe
That would have led
To poor men being dead
When they are dead inside

Really, i got this one during History as you can tell but i always wondered about the Judge. The Judge must have a lot of pressure going on. This poem is about a judge questioning his trial against an innocent. Enjoy.

Never judge a book you've never read!

I dont understand why we even have judges. all they do is sit in robes collecting money. the jury do all the work the judge does not pretty much.
