A Rhyme for the Time

A person, a company: They’ve been judged the same!
(Dad, Pastor, Investor … what’s in a name?)
But women? Still property: men’s vassals, mere fools.
For proof ask the men who still write all the rules.

So my friend Dan Wilkinson made this of that:

Eight "Bible-believing" churches vs. one progressive church
How churches support domestic violence, and what you can do about it
Pastors Unite to Denounce Churches' Attack on Progressive Christianity
Women being "subservient" is everything Jesus opposed
About John Shore

I’m in the final stages of finishing a novel.

    These companies want to be people,
    But they only want the good parts.
    Something something rhymes with steeple,
    Just remember: people have hearts.

    The highest court we know as SCOTUS
    Has held up its esteem of the man
    and of the person made of paper
    by laws and profit margins.
    Despite its lack of human life
    it still trumps a woman’s right.

    I honestly tried to write a limerick, but rhyming options are limited for SCOTUS

  • James Walker

    to spite the POTUS

    the men of the SCOTUS

    have totally screwed us

    and the female employees

    of Hobby Lobby

    I expanded on it a bit here:

    we’re feeling quite pensive
    those drugs, they’re expensive!
    they kill babies they cried
    they kill babies they lied
    as they plotted and sided
    ‘gainst the female employees
    of Hobby Lobby

    and now, to spite the POTUS
    the men of the SCOTUS
    have totally screwed us
    and the female employees
    of Hobby Lobby

    but in all of the ruccus
    when wondering what the fuss was
    did anyone bust their hump
    to ask why the owner should trump
    the beliefs of the female employees
    of Hobby Lobby?

    I’ll try a limerick:

    The Supreme Court can go to Nantucket
    So that I can tell them to…oh, you probably know the rest already
