The House of Cards

The house of cards is about to collapse.
The courts were never thought a threat,
but the courts flexed their judicial muscle,
and on representative democracy you can bet.

Thank the Lord for the division of powers.
Even as the Executive and half of Congress
sit on their collective thumbs,
the courts save history and point toward progress.

The house of cards is, in fact, collapsing.
The courts have always been a threat
to weak-kneed legislators and oval office autocrats.
On our Constitutional Republic you can always bet.
