Billable Pep Talk

Today’s poetry prompt courtesy of Writers Block Daily is “chances are.” It inspired me to write this law-related limerick:

Billable Pep Talk
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“The chances are good that you’ll win,”
Said the lawyer, betraying a grin.
“But you know either way
You will still have to pay
Me the fee that is set forth herein.”

    Chances are he’s one I won’t hire
    Cuz the one to beware is the buyer
    Only if I win will I pay
    There’s no other way
    30% of proceeds is better than higher

    Chance are she won’t.
    I touched and she said, “don’t”
    You may think you’re so cool,
    Since you went to private school.
    But your chance of success is remote.

    In deference to the party of the first part (MadK), the party of the second part (me) will not render Lawyer jokes in writing and will not include the findings of fact and conclusions upon which the jokes are based.

    Chances are good that you’ll get another stay
    But for that privilege your gonna have to pay.
    You’re wasting the Court’s time
    Might as well pay the fine
    Just how much Justice can you afford anyway?

    LOL! Thanks Wenchypoo! Just stuff that drives me nuts which … come to think of it … is pretty much everything. :)
