Supreme Court Musings

"You are all smart, Your Honors, with talent from birth,
And experienced jurists to boot;
Yet, of all the Amendments, you have demolished the
Fourth,
In opinions less than
astute."

"A citizen who works at his job like he should,
Will stay under the police's radar;
Do your nine to five and care for your brood,
And don't go fooling around in your
car."

"You grew old, Justice Stevens, under courthouse domes,
Hearing cases both
mundane and lurid;
But in
Kelo you ruled that we don't own our homes --
Please tell me, why did you do it?"

"You must understand that taxes come first;
They are what governments need to exist.
For us not to get our paychecks would be the worst --
Stop complaining or you'll go on a list."

"You were a conservative, Justice Thomas, with views that were strong,
And appointed by Bush Forty-one;
Yet you voted against
guns and in favor of porn;
How could this have ever been done?"

"When I was in the Army they taught me
Which one was my rifle and which one was my 'gun';
I can be shocked but not shot by pornography --
Just work hard, pay your taxes and have 'fun'."
