I really wanted the content of one’s character to be the standard

Might as well call that a dream deferred

Gavels were thrown like Mjolnir ad nauseum

While I had my own, I kept it hidden

Were others truly that insecure?

Civility was a rarity of sorts even long after 1965

Of course, some would throw around that name

As some surefire deflection while ignoring how the namesake ended up

The scales were still tilted in the present

People deserve better
