Lawyer tales

It's Saturday evening, seven a clock
4 people sit around a table
heavily engrossed
Brows are all knotted and fingers dance
they squabble and squablle and then .... go hush
voices are raised again and suddenly become dim
as they huddle together and proceed to skim
through pages and pages
of laws and rules
making sense of conflicting views

The question is tricky
complex and intense
on stake are millions
of a person who wants to invest
to form a fund, to start a bank.......
how to do that??
he just doesnt understand
lost and hopless
he does what he knows best
Shoots of an email, with a SIMPLE request!!

Lawyer Lawyer, help me dude
tell me what the fuck I am to do
Ill give you money and some time
Lets meet honey,
Whats a convinient time??

Lawyers are stumped, dont know what to do
totally clueless ...they have no expertise
saying NO is not an option
a client is to be milked
whatever the email caption

fucking shit what a mess
This may be BIG
lots of dough...
on sec
thats right LOTS OF DOUGH
saying no to money.. No, NO!!
that is sacrilage, just not done
We are lawyers, we are Certified scum

Confusion solved, priorities set
the client Will be milked
fuck the rest
Clarity got, action plan is set
Line up the juniors
oooooooooooohhh .......this shall be fun
we will watch them squirm
and scratch their heads
as they figure out this intricate web

its a sad tale. not fun at all
for u see, i am the junior
On saturday at 9 a clock
not wanting to work
and so i blog

how will this end
i dont know
just hope sometime today
i get to go home

to watch tv and talk on the phone
not worry about money and complex inflows
dream of a hammock, a sunset, a beach
swaying plams adding to the melody
Wake UP!! get a grip
find out about the broker shit

with a heavy heart and tired eyes
open the books, read more rules

what a life, deviod of joy
how do they do it for coutnless years?
read, haggle, type and print
make time sheets, and watch ur life
reduced to tabs on excel sheets
recording ur various deeds
days long and short
thats ur contribution to the world
Your TIME Record.

I want out
will get there too
till then
i stand aloof
observe and cynically smile.
watching the lawyers
play their game
whats the prize??
i havnt a clue

Got to run,
make a note
catch u later
in a happier mood.
till then cheers
it will change the mood
