Pity The Poor Lawyer (Limerick)

Pity The Poor Lawyer
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“Your billable hours are low,”
Said the partner. “They simply must grow.
It behooves you to hike them
Or better, please spike them.
To lunch breaks and sleep, just say no!”

(This is but one of many reasons why I’m a “recovering lawyer.” You can find more of my law humor here.)

    How did the junior member react?

    The associate listened in shock
    As she learned that her life was in hock
    To a clock-punching firm
    While her boss, who’s a worm,
    Made her wonder if law’s just a crock.
