invention
of uncivil law

on the intellectual radio
a british inventors’ society man
strongly chunks support
for patent laws
but admits to one disadvantage

if your patent idea is stolen
by some glass–glare water–floss corporation
whom in defence of livelihood
you take to court

you’ll make each lawyer more in months
than every penny ever to be earned
by any man who spends his life
pulling lives from burning fire

no matter it’s your invention stolen
the men of theft will reboot court until they win
pissing oodles of cash
to make you into nothing

so if you
and your back garden inventor’s shed
have no rapacious millions
financial psychopaths
rape the construction of your life

how things would change
if justice had import
to english civil law
