Rondelet: On the payroll


"I had said, that some of our crew left their country on account of having been ruined by law; that I had already explained the meaning of the word; but he was at a loss how it should come to pass, that the law which was intended for man's preservation, should be any man's ruin." 
Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745) was a cousin of the poet Dryden

Rondelet: On the payroll

On the payroll
The law causes more misery
On the payroll
Than what puts people on the dole
All judges accept salary
Are lawyers born divinity
On the payroll
