he seemed to know the courtroom
so quietly and elegantly he
walked through the heavy oak doors
and glided into his place at the
waiting expectantly for the
call to order
to begin his submission
his brief notes summed in one
with respect, Your Honour
my honourable friend has apparently missed the
filing date for his submission….
Thank you for your comment….
This case is removed from the
withdrawing to the lawyers
change room, he
removed his gown and collar,
replaced them with his
red plaid shirt and brigham pipe,
filled it with Wakefield tobacco, lit it,
then pulled on his knee-high rubber boots
for his return to his rural roost
smiling every so slightlyat his small-town achievement.
