Celebratory Ode

What has been absent from all the rejoicing about the nomination of Judge Sotomayor? Why, a celebratory ode, of course. We humble scribes must supply the deficiency.

All hail the brave and wise Latina!

Compelling is her story!

And jurisprudent her demeanor —

She’s on the path to glory!

At SCOTUS she’ll make policy

(What need for legislators?)

More jobs! More opportunity!

For twofer second-raters.

Latina wisdom, egged on by

La Raza mischief-makers,

With fill her soul with empathy

(Though not for white test-takers).
