Typewriter Rodeo: Supreme Court

Each week, the Texas Standard is reaching out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on a relevant headline or topic.

Healthcare. Marriage Equality. Texas license plates. The Supreme Court is expected to make decisions on all of these issues this month. That’s the inspiration for Typewriter Rodeo’s Jodi Egerton this week.

Supreme Court

Cloaked in the swankiest of judicial frocks

The justices reside

Atop their bench, to hear each case

The justices abide


They’ll grapple with our healthcare rights

And who can marry whom

They’ll hear each finely crafted phrase

As lawyers pack the room


They uphold this Constitution

from sea to shining sea

And we watch Chief Justice Roberts

Take on the Notorious RBG
