The House of Laws mourns

for the loss of its dignity.

The labyrinth of law and decorum

echoes in silent objection

to its violation before the world.


We weep for the unnecessary dead.

Everyone knows the reason for our sorrow,

but many will not admit the reason.


We walk down the corridors of Memory

in shame

for the next century,

for what happened on that Day of Epiphany.
