such a point of view

Was the defendant bribed
or did he win a bet?
asks the lawyer's 

severed hand.
And here enter
computer chips

programmed with precendents
seeking to bring
the founding fathers

back to life
as what-if robots
(upon which the jury realizes

most of them were assholes).
If assholes had eyes, how important
such a point of view

would be - pushing out and pinching off
all honesty, each calculated waste
honing their hindsight.
