Justice Ginsburg succumbed. She is dead.
And I would have told Death, “Go ahead,”
Had he needed me to.
But I wish, it is true,
That Death could have struck Roberts instead.

The Browner, the Better

 

Don’t confuse the Supreme Court with facts!
Don’t expect that mere logic’s attacks
Will achieve penetration!
Tasked with clear arbitration,
Justice Roberts will lick leftist cracks.

Persistent Smile

Persistent Smile

It’s clear that Justice Roberts is maturing.
It’s been clear for a long and painful while—
But nonetheless I summon up a smile
At what America has been enduring
As shameless statists juggle, thus ensuring
Destruction. History, I like your style!
The lofty rule in favor of the vile.
The ailment of the nation knows no curing.
Trump tried – but in, at most, a generation
We’ll crumble in the Venezuelan way.
It’ll be clear that we are not a nation.
Invaders, buddy, will be here to stay.
I smile because I know there’s compensation:
In Dante’s Hell, chief justices will pay.
