Fiat Justitia Ruat Caelum

(a legal maxim, translating as, “Let justice be done though the heavens fall“)

The sky shall not fall
Though Heaven come down to earth
Justice’ will be done

written in response to today’s daily prompt at The Daily Post

‘Should the whole frame of Nature round him break,
In ruin and confusion hurled,
He, unconcerned, would hear the mighty crack,
And stand secure amidst a falling world’
– Horace, Odes 3.3.7-8, translated by Joseph Addison
