23 million years ago
the Miocene creatures were on the run
from fanciful molds that we fit 
them in now.

The Supreme Court justices appeared 
from thin air
BAM! from behind the scarlet curtain
drawn to the sides
drawing us to our feet.

Sandra Day O’Connor might have
existed 23 million years past -- 
she, in her high backed chair
dwarfed with her fellows into 
a comical scene of ancient boredom.

“Oye, oye, oye!  All rise for the 
living fossils from the Oligocene”
progressing into deformed and
reconstructed rhinoceri.
