Martyrs of convenience

One cartoon common courtroom show

One acting judge so apropos

Rolling bench deep in the dough

Reclaimed for television’s

Afternoon decisions.

Plaintiff and defendant both

Birthrights sold for reserved notes,

Smack down in the court,

Justice now a sport,

Coarse verbal attacking,

Sarcasm, wise cracking,

Decorum is deterred,

A spectacle preferred,

As a common wooer

Runs law through a sewer

Skewing every viewer

Peripheral wrongdoers

Victims of expedience

Martyrs of convenience
