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:

    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

      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

    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?
