  • The brethren - Read On
    for justice draw nigh and get screwed No laughs It had been funny months earlier when T Karl first tried it Now it was just another part of the show He sat down carefully making sure the rows of curls bouncing upon his shoulders were given ample chance to be seen then he opened a thick red leather book which served as the official record for the court He took his work very seriously Three men entered the room from the kitchen Two of them wore shoes One was eating a saltine The one with no shoes was also bare legged up to his knees so that below his robe his spindly legs could be seen They were smooth and hairless and very brown from the sun A large tattoo had been applied to his left calf He was from California All three wore old church robes from the same choir pale green with gold trim They came from the same store as T Karl s wig and had been presented by him as gifts at Christmas That was how he kept his job as the court s official clerk There were a few hisses and jeers from the spectators as the judges ambled across the tile floor in full regalia their robes flowing They took their places behind a long folding table near T Karl but not too near and faced the weekly gathering The short round one sat in the middle Joe Roy Spicer was his name and by default he acted as the Chief Justice of the tribunal In his previous life Judge Spicer had been a Justice of the Peace in Mississippi duly elected by the people of his little county and sent away when the feds caught him skimming bingo profits from a Shriners club Please be seated he said Not a soul was standing The judges adjusted their folding chairs and shook their robes until they fell properly around them The assistant warden stood to the side ignored by the inmates A guard in uniform was with him The Brethren met once a week with the prison s approval They heard cases mediated disputes settled little fights among the boys and had generally proved to be a stabilizing factor amid the population Spicer looked at the docket a neat hand printed sheet of paper prepared by T Karl and said Court shall come to order To his right was the Californian the Honorable Finn Yarber age sixty in for two years now with five to go for income tax evasion A vendetta he still maintained to anyone who would listen A crusade by a Republican governor who d managed to rally the voters in a recall drive to remove Chief Justice Yarber from the California Supreme Court The rallying point had been Yarber s opposition to the death penalty and his high handedness in delaying every execution Folks wanted blood Yarber prevented it the Republicans whipped up a frenzy and the recall was a
