Supreme Court Poem
By Paul Felton

My feelings are still very raw
About the Judge Brett Kavanaugh
I must say that to me it seems
He’s not fit to join the Supremes

It’s clear to me he was at fault
In charges of sexual assault
And in the hearing room he lied
For perjury he should be tried

On other matters great and small
His views are quite Neanderthal
In any case it’s a sad day
For women, and the USA.

(Paul Felton is a Gray Panthers poet laureat.) 


The National Council of Gray Panthers Networks has endorsed the Green New Deal.  It creates a vision that America can both tackle climate change and work for economic justice by promoting a new green economy.  
We are inspired that leadership in this movement is being shared by some  bright young people in the Sunrise Movement -- young people who have a big stake in a future with a healthier climate and more green jobs.
