“Do you solemnly swear

That you will tell

The truth

The whole truth

And nothing but

The truth?”

Has been shortened to:

“Do you swear by

All of your lies?”

He swears.

He rages.

He attacks.

He claims.

He’s the victim,

Says he.

We simmer

As the hiss of air

Leaves democracy’s tent.

Supreme Court


In honor of


The honorable


Of the nine,

One seat stolen

Next seat swollen

Favors guaranteed

Laws bend then break.

Equality at stake.
