Fairness

God Save The Trees!

Even in an age so bold
As to serve up solutions
For problems yet to be named
The children trip
Circuits drip
Memories slip
And our drop box has nothing to hold

But bits and pieces
Ones and zeros actually
A metaphor for memory one
Might log in a ledger
Rather than utilize to count
Anything of substance

Even as the ink of ordinary
Endeavor slinks across the page
Litigants, clerks and lawyers
Prepare to scurry through a Title II
Fairy tale turning the Fairness
Doctrine, public interest

And, yes, even the air we breathe into precedent for pornographers,
Regional sports franchise fees
And other pertinent areas of national security.  It’s as if ‘Gaslight’ and ‘Groundhog Day’
Were the only stories known to the civilized world.  Everything changes.  The first one now will later be last.

But God help the trees
That will be felled
To make paper for this
Next boatload of briefs
