TIMELESS LANDMARK CASES

That timetables rapt familiarized discern
resolves transmitting rumors, my befriend
dysfunctions with misgivings, halting's bend
and circumvents a standstill toward no end!

While oppositions furthering's belief
beginning's placate, anchoring's achieve
and dormancy becomes a truth's bereave,
life's reconciling justice to perceive!

All told, involuntary atmospheric sieve,
the matters decimating planning's blind
are flushed away, as truth's fulfilled contend
perniciously is focused to amend!

The timeless trust, no telltale virtue's send
can irritate or spill the hope's distend
hurt's mortifying gospels' spoken trends
are turned to Love, by faith's conspired extend!

This standstill wavers not with jury's press
the voice of legal cost must so address
some epilogue of change, not chance's duress
must gravitate consideration's bless!


Trial of Standing Bear, Ponca Indian Chief.  On May 12, 1879
Chief Standing Bear held out his hand to Judge Elmer Dundy
and pleaded for recognition of his humanity ~
"My hand is not the color of yours, but if I pierce it, I shall feel pain.
If you pierce your hand, you will feel pain.  The blood that will flow
from mine will be of the same color as yours.  I AM A MAN.  
The same God made us both."

written by Thomas Henry Tibbles  ~ and most definitely visit upper
Northeast Nebraska on the Niobrara and Missouri Rivers.
