Ode to Johnny Cochran

The following file titled "Moore" is contained on a computer disc that contains other documents written in the first half of 1996.  The poem is a parody of the opening of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" from the 1970s.  The poem refers to my Petition for Review then pending before the D.C. Superior Court, Freedman v. D.C. Dept. Human Rights, 95-MPA-0014.

Ode to Johnny C.

If the Facts don't stand, you must remand!

Who can turn the court on with his guile?
Who can take a nothing case and make it all seem worthwhile?
Well, it's you guy, and you should know it.
With every tattered glove your verdict shows it.
Corruption's all around, no need to waste it,
you're gonna screw them after all!
