Justice Cardozo Ruled a Fool

Banished from solons’ many homes, I watch
Troops of scuffling scriveners crowd and plea.
The matters of the very poor they botch
And mutter to themselves their plaint: money.

My crime: insist a robed miscreant not
The matters of my many clients try.
Before him their dear interests can but rot
While his brother judges praise him high.

That judges judge a judge my foolish plea.
His crimes when done by others they condemn.
I interfered they said with just decrees,
A burden on lawyers who gifted him.

Gifts to the judge returned - Cardozo’s rule,
Now held to be the ravings of a fool
