Leo Sheffield

 
All hail great Judge!
To your bright rays,
We never grudge
Ecstatic praise.
All hail! all hail!
All hail! all hail! all hail!
May each decree
As statute rank,
And never be
Reversed in Banc.
All hail! all hail!
All hail! all hail! all hail!

For these kind words accept my thanks, I pray,
A Breach of Promise we've to try today.
But firstly, if the time you'll not begrudge,
I'll tell you how I came to be a Judge.

Let me speak, Hush! hush! he speaks!

Silence in court! silence in court!   He'll tell us how he came to be a Judge!
