Republican Congressmen sat in committee
And called, as their witness, young Tommy.
His presence was purely an act to draw pity;
The lad was still stuck in his mommy.
Their witness, unable to swear or affirm,
And unable to raise his right hand,
Looking less like a baby and more like a worm,
Reluctantly took to the stand.
"I'm glad you had time in your schedule to meet us"
The first representative smiled,
"Your perspective is needed; because you're a fetus
We value you more than a child."
The congressmen heard him, so loud and so clear,
Though Tommy, of course, had no voice;
(That's the reason young Tommy was called to be here--
His mother, of course, had no choice.)
Tommy's Mommy was there as a baby container--
What's important is, Tommy was there--
If she'd spoken up, they'd have had to restrain 'er
Cos Mom's voice? We really don't care.
You can't make this stuff up. All over the news, a committee of the Ohio house of representatives was to hear "testimony" from a fetus. A real one, not a doll like New Hampshire's Bob Smith used to bring to the US House. It appears, though, that the witness was not cooperative.
