Obama, Please Aim For Even Stevens

It’s the end of an era. The great Justice John Paul Stevens has announced his resignation from the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s a thank you limerick for Justice Stevens:

Obama, Please Aim For Even Stevens
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Great thanks to a judge I admire:
Justice Stevens, alas, must retire.
A supreme loss, indeed!
Please Obama, take heed:
In his place, name a judge who’ll inspire.

    Will Stevens’ retirement
    Be seen as a portent?
    Barack, find umbrellas
    Like Brennan and Douglas
    The Court should have a big tent!

    Justice Stevens I wish you good luck
    You’ve served us with a lot of pluck
    I hate to see you leave
    And I can only grieve
    If the Prez nominates some dumb schmuck

  3. Fair Americans will rejoice,
    if Obama’s justice choice
    can match John Stevens
    who supremely evens
    the biased Supreme Courts voice.

  4. When will Thomas and Scalia retire?
    These are questions I’d like to inquire.
    As well as Roberts and Alito
    I’d like to impeacho
    These activist judges for hire. ;-)

    Obama should promptly pursue
    Hillary for SCOTUS, thank you
    After a quick Senate probe
    She’ll look good in her robe
    Unless Bill gets a stain on it, too
