I Know That

I know that I will lose the job

Sooner or later

After that, I am going to die

Sooner or later

After that, I am going to be forgotten

Sooner rather than later

I have no family, so no traces will be left

Except a few gadgets and a lot of books

Which will be disposed of as of no value

Some of them are already outdated or damaged

That is the end. There is nothing after that.

What more is there to know?

Everyone present please observe two minutes of silence.

The … has been taken care of.

Rule of Law is Dead

Long Live the Rule of Law!


It is dead in various ways.

Someplace, it is dead as dodo.

Some others, it is dying fast.

The remaining, it is on the deathbed.


It was a sickly child when growing up.

It became a fake version of itself later.

Just like the case of liberalism.

Not to mention neoliberalism.


Might is right makes a big return.

Might is the rule, and the law, in 21C.

Investigation and execution as well.

Right of might is also back with a lash.

(Not surprisingly)


If you have fake liberals.

And you have fake lawmen.

With their fake legal transactions.

(Legal or extra-legal, what’s the difference?)


What did you suppose to get?
