Doggerel for a Favorite Justice

Chancellor Kent!
The man that you want
When the law is bent -
Chancellor Kent.

There is no legal problem
Too darkling for his sight;
Knotty, thorny, troubled:
Soon he'll set it right.
    Chancellor Kent! etc.

A dancer he,
Of chancery,
A scourge of all iniquity
A bastion for
The fashion wore
At St. George's Inn of equity.
    Chancellor Kent! etc.

He's a Yale man,
A hale man,
The best one that we've got -
He's never been
Mistaken on
What's truth and what is not.
    Chancellor Kent! etc.
