Scotus tension heightened and enlightened

(Faith in the U.S. Supreme Court, acknowledging the inevitable)

This quote written 385 years ago by John Donne caused my mind
to POTUS flow. The parentheses and words inside them are mine.
“Will he (Mueller) not let us alone, and think that there a loving
couple (45 and Melania) lies, Who thought that this device (smart phone) might be some way to make their souls, at the last busy day (end of Trump’s first term) meet at the grave, and make a little stay?” (continue a second term).


Of our President’s fixer up lawyer and troubled staff
many indicted, locked up, flipping info and facts
his model wife’s jacket subject to disgrace and laugh
before Pruitt left he had his staff do calendar redacts
state of the art smart phones have become the device
to expose inept immigrant border handling by ICE
disregard joker Giuliani’s every day defensive retort
many surmised in advance 45’s choice for Supreme Court
45’s rule may well be fading yet he tweets full bore
his embarassing insults and policy will not be stopped
alienation of allies, disastrous tariffs, we can’t ignore
with increased cyber band width he seldom flopped
to diminish women’s rights he wants new laws made
continues appointing judges to change Roe v. Wade.


The U.S. Supreme Court has some on its bench near death
the nine Court Justices try to hang on till their last breath
to the woman to the man one must also always expect
their decisions to be well written and legally direct
the judicial branch of government will persevere so say I
regardless of a conservative or liberal leaning anatomy
despite decisions, love for and ringing of liberty’s bell
despite their siding with or belief in heaven or hell
there during their busy calendar wise man and wise maid
will concur, dissent, and/or approve what others said
some will speak out while others will hold their tongue
in a rational chorus with judicial Constitutional song
some may holdback during their first years on the bench
few will pay any heed to a Trump based monkey wrench.
