Congressional coin-flipping

Flip a perfectly symbolic coin
in a Congressional hearing:

One side’s a wheedling,
grey-haired cracker lawyer;

One’s a careful black-haired
Puertoriqena NYC-judge.

Watch it spin & fall;
watch it fall & spin.

What you’re hearing speaks
volumes, legal & political;

what you’re seeing thins
the GOP down to the ghost
of a Confederate qu@rter.
