At Christmas our minds are rightly filled with thoughts of Santa and goodwill, but also let us not forget about some of the other people who have guided us and preserved our welfare. I refer of course to our politicians, dispensers of justice and even some of our councillors who have all contributed to our community in some way or other. I cannot write about them all of course but have chosen on this occasion Judge Peter Bowers as my subject, he is the man in the picture. - those who are interested can read all about the story here -

The actual music is comprised of no less than four Anglican chants which are spread over five verses. All of which was written in October and November this year 2012. I just love doing these sort of things.

Lyrics
Judge Mental written oct/nov 2012 – story of peter bowers
CHANT 1
1a. Sat like a king on an elevated throne and looking down on us all, he will pass his judgment.
1b. but as we listen to him, we stop to wonder and question, the depth of his dubious wisdom.
1c. upon dealing with a thief, found guilty on several charges of housebreaking.
1d. He finally arrived at a decision which it seemed to some had first passed through the thought process of a mentally disadvantaged orangutan.
CHANT 2
2a. This judge, known to the people as Peter Bowers.
2b. informed the assembled crowd, that prison was not the answer, and that this man should not suffer incarceration, as this would do him no good.
2c. he then went on to praise the defendant in the dock before him.
2d Telling the court, that this cheapskate had great courage in stealing from his community.
CHANT 3
3a. This decision, not surprisingly, caused much anger and protest,
3b. Some people questioning how the government ever came to employ such an out of touch tosser.
3c. Plonkers like this are plentiful.
3d. Many are more than willing, to make life threatening decisions, for us and on our behalf.
CHANT 4.
4a. Protect us from our justice system.
4b. who inform us that they know best.
4c. Health and safety, and political correctness baloney, all around us.
4d. But with toothless crones like this in power, be assured life has never been more hazardous.
CHANT4.
5a. As popular as a rattlesnake in a lucky dip, and as effective as iron lifebelt,
5b. The good judge, while still drawing his excessive salary, became the subject of a judicial watchdog enquiry.
5c. But now it seems, it’s all blown over.
5d. And unless I am mistaken, this will be the last you’ll ever hear of it, as they sweep it under the carpet.

Judge mental, judge mental, - A-men.

Oh brother, do not start me down THIS
path....these dickheads are just unbelievable....and unbelievably arrogant and above all mostly unanswerable to anyone....I am amazed that he has had his knuckles rapped.....but as you rightly observe ,it will get swept under the carpet.........I have had dealings with the Officials of the judiciary over the last 32 years....I firmly believe that the Judicial system exists purely for the benefit to and of the said system and those that serve it and to the benefit of no other...the law my friend is an ass....whichever way you want to slice it......cracking good job on the multi-tracked vocals by the way ........

Cheers

Hi Jarv
I knew I could rely on your reaction to this. I am also writing to the parole board here as well who in their infinite wisdom recently released a killer on a life licence who then went on to kill again. I tried to talk to them over the internet but guess what - they don't want to - so now I have to use registered mail to communicate. These quarter wits make my blood boil. Oh and thanks for listening fella. JJ.

Judge Mental
They're everywhere! They're everywhere! I guess in all professions you will find a percentage who don't deserve their job, and this seems a very clear example of one such person. Did you send him a copy? Excellent work, John.

thank you Philip
T haven't sent him a copy but I do like immortalizing these people in music as I suppose ridicule is the only weapon I have left to use on them. Writing gets you absolutely nowhere, I know, I've tried it.

Brilliant
conception, writing, and execution (and perhaps that should be an appropriate word for this bloke)

I have to say I'm not happy with the comparison with an orangutan and if I was that monkey I'd be very offended.

Cheers

Thank you Dick
Yes I probably was out of order regarding the orangutan reference and I withdraw that without reservation.

These little pieces are time consuming to put together but I do enjoy making them, I love the idea of the music having to bend to the words instead of the other way 'round. As a friend of mine once pointed out - you could sing a restaurant menu to this music.

thank you Bob
When I write these I try to use the same guidelines that have been handed down over the centuries though sometimes with my limited vocal range these have to be bent a little here and there. I am generally working inside a corridor of little more than two octaves - [on a good day !] thanks again.
