Civ Pro Soliloquy 

Our Civ Pro professor likes to ask class members to do "dramatic readings" of the particular
FRCP rules we are covering at the time. In response, here is my dramatic interpretive response.

To 12(b)(6) or not to 12(b)(6), that is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the court to suffer
The motions and pleadings of outrageous opponents
Or to take knuckles against the judge's chamber
And by opposing dismiss them. To waive, to sleep --
No more -- and by an exam to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand FRCP rules
That 1L's are heir to.
