Harvard Law School
Is a Neo-Con Cesspool
After Deans Clark and Kagan
I would not send my dog to
I like my dog
Nor my kids
Nor others’ kids
I like them too
To learn torture
And become torturers
To learn war crimes
And become war criminals
To learn kangaroo courts
And become kangaroos
To learn drones
And become droners
To learn murder
And become murderers
To learn assassinations
And become assassins
To trash the Constitution
And International Law
Human Rights too
This is not the HLS
I entered
In 1971
A Pox upon their House
