"Mere factual innocence is no reason not to carry out
a death sentence properly reached." 
       --attributed to Antonin Scalia

I love to see the schmucks who smugly snivel
   And fight their living enemies with lies
Become the saints who say we should be civil
   And act respectful when an asshole dies—
Because he was their asshole, and defended
   Privilege with legal chapter and worse,
And always made sure that he condescended
   When his dissents put the die in diverse.
He was a Pecksniff full of poppycock,
   So don’t ask me to praise this clever prig
For trying to turn back the social clock
   To 1850. I’ll just dance a jig.
      And since deaths come in threes, dear God, please promise
      The next are Kissinger and Clarence Thomas.
