The Kangaroo Court of a Nominee

Nominee's Court


The Nominee by the Kangaroo Court to install a Judiciary

A lyrical poem of the illegal Nominee for Supreme Court by a Kangaroo Court

The Kangaroo Court

The day the Kangaroo Court convened

To vote on the president’s nominee

The Kangaroos were feeling real mean

Because a mere woman appeared on the scene

She told of the nominee’s outbreak

Her virtue and perhaps her life at stake

Dr. Blasey told her story of abuse

Before the angry Kangaroos

Who sat stone faced their venom ready to spew

Glaring at the victim who they wanted to skew

One Kangaroo turned into a man

He was the one to take a stand

The other Kangaroos call him a Flake

Sen. Flake ask for time for the FBI to investigate

But behind their backs in his underhand

The president gave the FBI a different command

The FBI was given a week to seek out to whom they would speak

The knew with whom they were not allowed

To speak, with the accused or the accuser

One Senator said with a roar

I voted for Kegan and Sotomayor

I wouldn’t do to them what they did to this man

But he did not mention President Obama’s rightful nominee

Merrick Garland, who did not have a say

The GOP swore to have President Obama’s right to pick a Justice taken away

The nominee hurried to the oval office

To learn from the master of blaming women for their private parts he grabs

And portrays himself a victim as at the women he would stab

With his tears and snarling face

He claimed he was the one who was debased

He said democrats are a mob of disgrace not members of the human race

This is the way of the Kangaroo Court

They don’t care how or who they hurt

As they cast the virtue of women into the dirt

Because the nominee’s raging hormones got out of hand

Even when he SWORE for all Americans he would stane

As he bowed to the Kangaroo band.

How awful that Justice Ginsburg has died, and now Trump and his cronies will try to put another undeserving person like the last 2 they appointed, in her place. I have heard both from The Young Turks and one of the major news agencies that there are ways to possibly prevent this from happening. I sure hope the Democrats actually try to prevent it, but they tend to allow themselves to be rolled over most of the time.

Hope all is well with you. Blessings, dear friend . . .

C E Clark from North Texas on September 09, 2020:

I read just a day or so ago that Trump has Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton on his short list for a possible replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She is barely hanging on. If Trump is re-established as president, poor old Ruth will never get through another 4-years.

Trump is installing as many of his crooked Republican friends (A-kissers) as possible in longterm positions, and the ones on the Supreme Court will likely still be there long after you and I have moved on.

Hope you and Walter are staying safe from the virus. Blessings, dear friend. Take care . . .

C E Clark from North Texas on October 15, 2019:

I hope both Trump's appointees are impeached and removed. The first one especially, Kavanaugh, not only because he is corrupt, but also because he is illegitimate. Republicans refused to even consider Obama's recommendation for a "trumped up reason." What they did was unconstitutional IMO. Obama should have filled the vacancy. Kavanaugh is morally bankrupt like all GOPers seem to be these days.

Blessings dear friend. Hope all is well . . .

Hi There!

Enjoying your writing!

Shyron E Shenko Hope all is good with you and haven't heard from you in a while.

C E Clark from North Texas on February 23, 2019:

There are going to be a lot of court proceedings before much longer. I hope they are all useful. Doesn't seem like the inquiry into Kavanaugh ever materialized. I guess they're in a frenzy looking into Trump & Assc., though Kavanaugh is certainly one of those.

Can you believe Jeffrey Eptein got only a year in jail (at night only, free during the day) for all the terrible things he did to little girls? Our entire government system is so corrupt anymore, we might be lucky to get even a kangaroo court. It's very discouraging.

Hope you are well. Blessings dear friend . . .

Genna, sorry it took so long to answer your comment, I have not been myself for a while. Wish I had seen the SNL spoof. Thank you for commenting on the article.

Blessings my friend.

C E Clark from North Texas on January 23, 2019:

In the last couple of days I've read that The House, I think, is opening an investigation on Kavanaugh, and that impeachment is a possibility, depending on their findings.

Hope you are managing these cold nights well. The wind has been horrible too. Take care, dear friend. Blessings . . .

Posting this to FB and AH.

Devika Primic on January 06, 2019:

Interesting insight of what has been going on there. I think you did a fantastic job on sharing the situation in your own words.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on November 07, 2018:

Kangaroo is perfect for the circus that ensued surrounding the recent 9th Supreme. They did everything but push him through the Chambers door. Our standards are falling woefully short, my friend. When I listened to this man defend himself and to the rhetoric he used, I was flabbergasted. I watched Matt Damon do a spoof on the hearings (he was Kavanaugh of course) on SNL -- absolutely hysterical, and spot on!

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 28, 2018:

Elijah, thank you for the comments and for the links.

Blessings my friend

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on October 26, 2018:

CEC, https://hubpages.com/politics/Treason-USA-Style should end the whole "party system" means of corruption and institute https://discover.hubpages.com/politics/The-U-S-Con... to replace it. It is that time prophesied for civilization.

C E Clark from North Texas on October 26, 2018:

It wasn't just the accused and the accuser the FBI was ordered not to speak to. They weren't allowed to speak to Julie Swetnick or any of the witnesses who claimed knowledge of things that happened. They NEVER spoke to Kavanaugh's roommate. Who might have more info on someone than their roommate? Or other members of these drinking clubs, or the T&C club? The investigation was a disgusting sham.

Trump outdoes himself every day. Everyday he does more than any other president in our history has ever done so far as we know. He nullifies more regulations so that our planet will become more polluted and he undermines more employment laws, personal safety laws, and equality laws than all the previous presidents combined. Laws that level the playing field for people of color and for women, and for the middle class, working class, and the poor.

The Republican Party, in charge of all branches of government at this time, and from since Trump was inaugurated, are all complicit in what Trump is doing and make every excuse to let him keep doing it.

Members of the Republican Party leadership have stated bluntly that they don't care if he's breaking any laws. I think the whole works is on the Russian payroll and Putin is their boss.

If Democrats ever get in power again they need to impeach Kavanaugh for lying under oath innumerable times.

They should enlist the help of the Saudi's when it comes to dealing with Trump. Seems like they (the Saudi's) have got it down to a science, with a team that spares nothing when it comes to efficiency.

Hope you are well dear friend. Blessings . . .

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on October 26, 2018:


That is also true of Clarence Thomas' conformation.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on October 25, 2018:

I do not often comment when it comes to politics but that was a sham of a hearing. The F.B.I. had their hands tied as to what they could investigate. They did not even question the two main people involved in the incident! Had they been able to do that and question all the others calling them and wanting to testify, the outcome would not have the shadow over it that it will now always have.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 24, 2018:

Pam, thank you so much for the compliment and comments, I truly appreciate you.

Blessings my friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 24, 2018:

Mr. Dilley, thank you for the comment and compliment, I do appreciate you.

Blessings always.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 24, 2018:

John, thank you for the comments and compliments, I do appreciate you. I don't know anything about the affairs of other countries either,

but if you write about your country I will learn.

Blessings my friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 24, 2018:

Elijah, thank you for the comments and reminding me to re-read the book of Daniel.

These are foreboding times we are living in.

Blessings my friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 24, 2018:

Flourish, you are welcome, thank you for the comment, I stood in line for an hour and a half to vote, I have not seen that many people in line before. I really appreciate you.

Kavanaugh should not be allowed to sit in judgement of others.

Blessings and hugs my dear friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 17, 2018:

Liz, thank you for the comment, you are so right, it is a sad state of affairs when a woman who is accosted and abused, then when she speaks up has to relive that experience and is accused of lying by a (man?) without scruples who had done much worse. I just pray the truth will come out for all to see.

Blessings my friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 17, 2018:

Bill, thank you for your comment and you are right payback is a bitch. One thing Kavanaugh said is true “what goes around comes around” and he has a lot coming around to him.

In the meantime he does not deserve to sit in judgement of anyone else. Yes I will be voting as always, even though I don't know if my vote will count in this reddest of the red states.

Blessings my friend.

Shyron E Shenko (author) from Texas on October 17, 2018:

Ethel, thank you for the comments, I really appreciate you.

Pam Morris from Atlanta Georgia on October 17, 2018:

Shyron, you have skills to write this in a poetry style, good job!

Dr. Dilley from Phoenix Arizona on October 16, 2018:

great piece

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on October 16, 2018:

I really know very little about the situation as I don't follow other country's politics very much, but from what I have heard you are spot on with the points you make in this poem. Good work Shyron.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on October 15, 2018:

So truthfully put into verse, even the Kangaroos can't deny the truth of what you wrote. But there is an unseen by man in mass which will turn this nation's governors inside out. They call themselves "The In Crowd" and will soon find themselves inside of different prisons walls thanks to the hand that put all things in motion and decreed when it would end.

If you know anything about the writings of the Bible's prophet Daniel you will remember Nebuchadnezzar was historical Babylon's king who begin birthing the end time civilization that would end with a "Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abomination of the Earth." That nation would reach the heavens (space travel) like the Tower of Babel attempted in beginning civilization.

That final action would have branches reaching he ends of the earth like the USA's military branches are "occupying" over 150 nations earth wide today and it's president declared his greatness to the world leaders at the United Nations therefore within one hour (spiritually we don't know exactly how long that hour represents) he lost his position, the handwriting on the wall Belshazzar had Daniel to read, socialization is about over and the two pillars (political parties) Samson destroyed will include all of those responsible for the TREASONS of this nation against its people being imprisoned for life, their death.

FlourishAnyway from USA on October 15, 2018:

Thanks for writing this poem. What a disgrace, a sham of a process. May Kavanaugh’s precious daughters never meet a young man in high school or college like their father. He’s such a liar propped up by enablers who have sold their withering old souls.

Vote, vote, vote!

Liz Westwood from UK on October 15, 2018:

A strong poetic account of a sad state of affairs. Maybe on this side of the Pond we should be getting lyrical about the Brexit mess.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on October 15, 2018:

It was, without a doubt, one of the most embarrassing chapters in this country's history. The only thing I cling to is the old adage "paybacks is a bitch!" Get out to vote!

Ethel Smith from Kingston-Upon-Hull on October 15, 2018:

Good lyrical sum up of the situation. Handmaid’s tale becomes reality.
