There is no
Stare decisis
Unfortunately that’s how
It slices
The Supreme Court
Is in a crisis
Because they’ve
Rolled the dices

The precedents
That have been set
Are too easy
For them to forget
And don’t seem
To be binding yet
Much to our regret
We have a right to be upset

The Supreme Court
Has become
A political wing
Of an ugly
Conservative thing
Along with
The damage
It can bring

Within the realm
Of settled law
Nothing will
Stand up anymore
The way it
Once did before
And that we can
Bet on for sure

Women of America
Proceed with all do caution
The Supreme Court has overruled
Your right to abortion
And frankly speaking their decision
Is a distortion
Of long settled law
That was made a contortion

So, so much for  
Sta’re Decisis
The Latin term
For settled laws like this
Clearly the court
Has to be called remiss
For striking it down
And making you ******

Women rise up
And let your voices be heard
What the Court did
Is nothing short of absurd
Obviously
The thought never occurred
That they would go back
On their sacred word

Women of America
You’re under attack
Sorry, but that’s just
A salient fact
That the law of the land
No longer has your back
Now you must decide
How you’re gonna act!

Vlad “The Destroyer
Is wreaking havoc
On Ukraine’s foyer
As a bomb and missle
Deployer
And an international
Annoyer
And a grave digger’s employer

Vlad “The Destroyer”
Couldn’t be coyer
Than an unemployed lawyer
Who’s labeled a ******
And a force majeurer
In an unnecessary war
Of his own undertaking
And his own making

Vlad “The Destroyer’s”
Inhumanity and insanity
is there for all to see
And what’s also key
Is no mystery
Cos it doesn’t have to be
Shaping modern history
That’s gotten blistery

Vlad “The Destroyer”
I’ll always insists
Has to be
Some kind of narcissist
So as he evaporates
Into the mist
Guess whos ***
He can kiss?

If I accept him
As my Lord and Savior
Could you tell
By my behavior?
Would that give me
Some kind of waiver?
That endows me with
Special favor?

If I accept him
As my God
Would that not be
Kind of odd?
Or by definition
Flawed?
And would that not be
A tad too broad?

If I accept the trinity
Or claim that he
Is one of three
What would that then
Say of me?
When one has never
Equaled three
Nor does it fit mathematically

If Holy Mary is
The Mother of God
Instead of an oft repeated
Facade
Let her strike me down
With her awesome rod
Upon the ground
In which she trods

The war in Ukraine
Has turned sour
And it’s gettin’ dire
By the hour
Putin must not
Remain in power
Because his demeanor
Is very dour

The war in Ukraine
Has reached a stalemate
Buttressed by Putin’s
Unique brand of hate
See his endgame
Is hard to calculate
And the bombs that he drops
Changes everyone’s fate

The war in Ukraine
I sincerely fear
Will not be limited
Nor will it stop there
And threats of nukes
Gives us quite a scare
For those wolf tickets
We need to prepare

The war in Ukraine
Has demonstrated
That “Vad The Destroyer”
Has miscalculated
The resistance he’s met
Was not anticipated
And that salient fact
Can’t be overstated

Between Uncle Clarence and
Wife Jenny
Integrity they haven’t
Any
But nerve they have
A plenty
See neither one of them
Are worth a penny

Between Uncle Clarence and
His errant spouse
Which one is running
Their house?
And  who’s quiet
As a church mouse?
The same one who’ll
Never grouse

Between Uncle Clarence
And his wedded mate
There’s a bond of love
And lot of self-hate
That’s easy to
Calculate
By the one who carries
The most weight

Between Uncle Clarence
And his beloved
It had long ago been
Discovered
That one of ‘em was
Totally smothered
Underneath the dark wings of
A buzzard.
