The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Future of the International Criminal Court

The Future of the International Criminal Court


James Bredin

The judges of the International Criminal Court
Are appointed by their UN friends of course
And never asked whither they love or hate
Dictatorship, democracy, or a police state
‘Bout vested interests, despotism or a jury
Or charging someone from the State of Missouri
Or their relationship with countries that didn’t sign on
Or heterosexual white guys they tend to frown upon

And terrorism is not listed as one of their crimes
But they’ll list it whenever they get around to it in time
Their jurisdiction covers everyone both far and near
They’ve taken it upon themselves to push and persevere
But they cannot push their law without the use of force
And what if they want a US serviceman in due course?
Because the Americans decided that here they don’t belong
Nor do they want a US serviceman to be taken along.
