It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock reflects on how the Robert’s Court will decide on the law suits over the birth control mandates in ObamaCare. The poem was originally published by the Bard on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.
By Any Means
The Roberts Court will soon decide
Another healthcare suit.
And how will Justice Roberts vote
To settle the dispute?
Perhaps by vote of five to four
The mandate stays intact,
As Roberts and the liberal wing
Maintain their lawless pact.
Perhaps, with firm and august words,
The Chief himself will write,
That morals need not come through faith,
Protected by a right.
For lack of this necessity
The government is free,
To do whatever it will do
By rule or decree.
By any means to reach the end,
For propping up the Healthcare Act,
From Justice Robert’s Court.
