Now, gather round me people, and listen to my tale,
'bout our second-highest judge, Baroness Hale.
Noting that some folk get more exemptions from the law
Than others do, she said "We shouldn't do this any more,"
Then proceeded to explain that what we really need to do
Is make sure that the Christians can get exemptions too.
Now, I've never been to Gray's Inn, and I'm no Knight Commander;
Do I need a fancy title, to better-understand her?
For it seems to me her thinking's just a little out of sorts
(Is her reasoning this bad, when she's ruling in our courts?),
If she sees some people gaining from inequality
And thinks the way to act is "Get some of that for me!"
Please say I'm wrong; that can't be what she meant to say.
A member of our government, surely knows that way
Would lead to nowt but anarchy as every little sect
Claimed the right to do whate'er their god said was correct.
But, alas, I fear I'm right; such people never learn.
They don't want equality, but privilege, unearned.
Just a passing thought, before I put this to bed… I have to wonder why this member of my government chose not to espouse extra privilege for religion on the floor of the House, but chose, instead, to give voice to her wish to make me a second-class citizen from a foreign shore.
