    T’was the night before XMAS
    And all about the Supreme Core(t)
    Nothing was innovative enough
    Nothing was significantly more

    All are mere abstractions
    Not for inventors satisfaction
    Can’t get those IP rights no no no
    Keep it a secret and let ’em eat crow

    Economy of our nation
    Ain’t supposed to expand
    Only the throwbacks
    Now rule our land

    But why be sour
    Why be insecure
    The Constitution giveth us
    Supreme justice manure

    On Alice, On Mayo and even Bilski too
    You may have a patent
    But not for which you can sue

    And on that cheerful note:

    Happy Holidays to Gene and his brood
    And to all you patent geeks in the IP neighborhood

    Pretty good steppy. Too bad you didn’t work in a witch burning.
