‘The primacy of attire’

A lawyer was so happy

To do what he does best

At last a matter in lockdown!

He had to pass this test …


So he sweated & toiled

Prepared it without rest

Because it was important

And he fancied a slugfest


Positioned before the screen

Ready for the worst or best

He ignored what he wore

Which was pyjamas & vest


When his case was called

To be really honest

He didn’t expect Milord

To make an issue of the vest!


But Milord lost his cool

(Anyway it was very hot)

“I won’t hear you,” said he

Putting him in a tight spot!


So an adjournment ensued

As his gun couldn’t fire

He has learnt the hard way

The primacy of attire …
