Smell a rat?

After all the ifs and buts
A judge must have the guts
To say, yes i have written that!

A judgment that’s too long
Is not necessarily strong
It’s basic premises may fall flat!

Then like an orphaned child
Abandoned in wilderness wild
It faces an adverse impact

The decision is such a shame
That no author has put his name
Is that done by design or tact?

If you do something unwise
Why fear if the critics criticize
Or expose you as a matter of fact?

Nowadays if we spot a spine
They’ll all say, no that’s not mine
Never seen something like that!

We wish to appease and endear
Ourselves to those whom we fear
So what if others smell a rat?
