In my court you will do as I say, think for yourself and I’ll lock you away.

Name, name you who I’ll shame, what is your name and, name is your what?
Or have you forgot?

Dad is my name, daddy to my son.

You’re a father; it’s you who we shun!
You’re wasting my time; I should be off golfing and having fun
Why are you here, why are you near, don’t try to play on my emotions, dear.

I’d like to see my son.

Sun, sun, look out the window, you’ll see your sun.

I don’t mean that, that I do not mean, s-o-n, my son sir is
Who I wish to see!

Usher of the court, give me a report.
What is a father and what is a son?

Something that was done for fun, maybe in recreation
And consummation of the child’s creation!

Yes, yes, makes a bloody awful mess.
Father, never had one of those the stalk
Left me under a rose on our garden plot.

Explains a lot.

What did you say; I’ll hang you before the end of the day.

Nice garden plot!

Why do you want to see the creature this mother has got?

We will have fun and I’ll nurture him a lot.

Fun, fun no time for fun no father needs to see his son -so the mother says-

I just thought…

Silence in my court, a thought, just, a thought!
That is contempt of my court
No father is allowed a thought!

My son, my son I dearly love…

Love, love, that’s no reason, it is high treason
Take him away and hanged today. That’s
Fun boy, aye?

Court usher, tea and toast as we watch him
Hang from the post!

Yes Sir! Then golf Sir?

A mother should NEVER deny a father the right to see his children unless there was a darn good reason. Shame on her!!

Love ya!

It hurts when the absurd and reality become indistinguishable. Well done Patrick

Such is the "justice" of men, Andy. Sad but stark and real. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Total brilliance, Turner. The verbal equivalent of a Gerald Scarfe cartoon and twice as hauntingly real. This is sheer inspiration driven through macabre personal experience. Your pen both bleeds and radiates. xx

I WOULD BE LAUGHING ANDY BUT THIS SORT OF THING IS SO TRUE. MOTHER'S DON'T REALIZE THAT FATHER'S LOVE THEIR CHILDREN JUST AS MUCH AS THEY DO...OR...SOMETIMES...IT'S THE GREATER TRAGEDY...THEY DO REALIZE. I HOPE YOU GET THE VICTORY...PRAY MUCH. THANKS FOR SHARING AND KEEP YOUR CHIN UP. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Andy, you've outdone yourself with this piece of great humor -- droll as the hilarious works of my all time favorite stand up comedian this is -- your comedic skills are considerable my dear friend -- I judge it to be very entertaining -- I bid you joy, love and peace -- Jon Michael

Wow! Wow. So playfully clever, yet you delve deep, snaring all that is so painfully ludicrous about the judge, about the situation, with brilliant caustic whimsy!

Love the offbeat take, the wry
point of view, the delivery of
this farce and circus - sharp as
ten new razor blades you are, Andy,
and cutting edge.

Entertaining yet frustration is oozing from the tight stitches of humor. Does this judge reside somewhere in the 1970's Toon town? Perhaps on Dafty Drive?

I think we would all be surprised if we could look behind closed doors to see what kind of life many of our judges lead! And, these are the men and woman who decide the fate of many of the people who are brought before them. Justice? You decide.

What a court of idiocy this guy managed to find. I can understand, though, where this piece of work could have gleaned its thoughts from. Wonder how the judge would be if he'd been there for a traffic ticket?
