Wow! I just discovered this my poem that I posted several
years ago. I am now retired, but I am looking forward to
getting back into the law.
"Old Hardy's Closing"
Old Hardy went to court and then
Pled his case that he might win.
Throughout the trial, the judge did doze,
Until he heard old Hardy close.
"Your Honor, I know this case is borin';
But, as I said when you were snorin',
Defendant failed to use due care,
Now plaintiff's damages he must repair.
"We've made our case and filed our brief;
And now we ask for just relief.
We've waited patiently for this day;
Now it's time defendant pay.
"The plaintiff's neck did whup and lash
And now she needs a stash of cash,
To compensate her for her pains,
Cervical and lumbar strains."
