#NationalPoetryDay with a #SCOTUS twist—some courtly clerihews by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Henry Taylor (from Brief Candles, LSU Press, 1998):

Antonin Scalia
likes to sing "The Rose of Tralee"—a
treat for all students
of his jurisprudence.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
said ''Titanic,'' in truth, made her wince. ''Berg
phobia?'' inquired a reporter.
''No,'' she said, ''I just wish it were shorter.''

Anthony Kennedy
was startled: when had he
removed his tie?
And why?
Sandra Day O'Connor
was just about to don her
robes when her clerk
simply went berserk.

David Souter
booted up his computer
and discovered that sex is
treated dryly in LEXIS.
