Scalia attended the Emmett Lee Dickinson School for Boys in Queens, NY, and he was a great fan of America's greatest poet. He often used the language of Dickinson -- including "pure applesauce," "jiggery pokery," and more -- in many of his rulings.
In the mid-1800s, Emmett Lee Dickinson served one term in congress. At that time, President Lincoln tried to push through the Reasonable Care Act (also known as “Lincoln-care”) for reasonably priced health care for American citizens. However, the legislation was found to be unconstitutional by the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney.

By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
"Healthcare" – is what they shall not reach!
Applesauce if you ask Me –
Provide it? That's hopeless – jigger-pokery –
That – "Heathcare" is – to Me!
The Concept, of the RCA –
Across the entire Land?
Up on the Hill – the House inside –
Where – Paradox – is found!
The teasing somersaults – Afternoons –
Incredulous – interpretations –
Enamored – of the Conjurer-in-Chief –
I spurn him – Everyday!
By Emily Dickinson:
"Heaven" – is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree –
Provided it do hopeless – hang –
That – "Heaven" is – to Me!
The Color, on the Cruising Cloud –
The interdicted Land –
Behind the Hill – the House behind –
There – Paradise – is found!
Her teasing Purples – Afternoons –
The credulous – decoy –
Enamored – of the Conjurer –
That spurned us – Yesterday!
