Mr. Justice David Souter
Has had enough of the Supremes
He’s been a circumspect straight shooter
But he’s aghast at right-wing schemes.
In the case of Citizens United
He wrote a very strong dissent
It was so strong that it incited
Justice Roberts’ discontent.
So Roberts used a nifty trick
To keep from it the light of day
Since Souter’s such a maverick
I really wish he’d had his say.
He castigated certain justices -
His right-wing colleagues on the court -
No doubt he felt disgust as his
Dissent was then cut short.
See Toobin’s article about
The Citizens United tale -
It gave the wealthy too much clout,
And put our country up for sale.
