A Poem for Friday
As noted by many observers, especially, my first choice for clerk, I am not the rabid ideologue that many make me out to be. I even have a pretty good sense of humor.
So I'm writing a poem for Friday in my own defense:
No! I am not Scalito, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.
I, incidentally would ACE the Danny Boggs Quiz.
