Unveiling the schema in ottava rima

Oath of Avarice

I pledge allegiance to the corporation:
A "person" as the judges have proclaimed,
And place this "him" or "her" above my nation
Whose Constitution "he" or "she" has maimed
Pursuant to no legal obligation
Except immunity, however named,
For those investors in their campaign suites
Who'd rather that we call them our "elites."
