The Twelve Days Of A California Judicial Branch Christmas

On the first day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the second day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the third day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the fourth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
Judicial branch administrators
Committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the fifth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.
Judicial branch administrators committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the sixth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
Another meaningless, geographically lopsided, and insular
Future of California Courts committee.
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.
Judicial branch administrators committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the seventh day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A self-fabricated $70 million revenue shortfall as yet another excuse
To demand the Legislature hand over more public money.
Another meaningless, geographically lopsided, and insular
Future of California Courts committee.
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.
Judicial branch administrators committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the eighth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A retinue of hypocritical judicial branch leadership
Void of any credibility.
A self-fabricated $70 million revenue shortfall as yet another excuse
To demand the Legislature hand over more public money.
Another meaningless, geographically lopsided, and insular
Future of California Courts committee.
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.
Judicial branch administrators committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the ninth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
More closed courthouses and reduced public hours
While engaging in a pick-axe logo spending spree.
A retinue of hypocritical judicial branch leadership void of any credibility.
A self-fabricated $70 million revenue shortfall as yet another excuse
To demand the Legislature hand over more public money.
Another meaningless, geographically lopsided, and insular
Future of California Courts committee.
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.
Judicial branch administrators committing perjury with impunity.
A false proclamation of open meetings
While remaining firmly entrenched in non-transparency.
A judicial branch funding blueprint that was dead on delivery.
And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the tenth day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
A ten second warning to speak
On important matters of public policy.
More closed courthouses and reduced public hours
While engaging in a pick-axe logo spending spree.
A retinue of hypocritical judicial branch leadership void of any credibility.
A self-fabricated $70 million revenue shortfall as yet another excuse
To demand the Legislature hand over more public money.
Another meaningless, geographically lopsided, and insular
Future of California Courts committee.
A childish game of Go Fish when responding
To simple requests of information from a public entity.

And a Chief Justice endlessly deluded by power and vanity.

On the eleventh day of Christmas
455 Golden Gate Avenue gave to me
Another eleven months of branch administration
Engaging in deceitful revisionist history.
A ten second warning to speak
On important matters of public policy.
More closed courthouses and reduced public hours
While engaging in a pick-axe logo spending spree.
A retinue of hypocritical judicial branch leadership void of any credibility.

The most corrupt and unethical State institution
That will always be the AOC to me.
Another eleven months of branch administration
Engaging in deceitful revisionist history.
A ten second warning to speak
On important matters of public policy.
More closed courthouses and reduced public hours
While engaging in a pick-axe logo spending spree.
