Henry’s Elegy For William H. Rehnquist, Ha Ha

God sent down his right-hand man
to pick up the Supreme Court Chief Justice
William H. Rehnquist.

Apparently, according to God, there were too many
brown and black people
in heaven,

too many of the infirm,
too many mentally handicapped,
too many infants in heaven’s halls,

so God figured the best
cold-blooded man for the job
would indeed be William H. Rehnquist.

And, as soon as the Supreme Court Chief Justice
put one foot down in paradise
he quickly expelled everybody on God’s shit list.

After the Chief Justice was done
he proudly dusted off his hands.
Ironically, the place looked a lot like hell.
