‘What degree is best?’

When someone sings of having
love in the first degree;
how could we possibly ever know
what that means?

A first degree murder
is a Capital offense
but a first degree burn
is of little consequence!

Inversely, a third degree burn
puts one in critical condition
but a third degree murder is like
a mercy killer on a mission.

When the suspect claims to have
been given the ‘third degree’;
was he ‘beaten within an inch of his life’
or was the interrogation a mere ‘slap on the knee’?

Also; what about the ‘second degree’.
Are we to believe that its always in-between?
