The worried lawyer

For any lawyer in practice
Wherever he may be
What’s as vital as winning
Is his hard-earned fee …

The profession is uncertain
No one knows what’s in store
Yet the heart does leap up
To behold a client at the door …

COVID-19 is a spoilsport
By its injunction temporary
The status quo it ordered
Is too onerous and scary

Clients pursued lawyers
Wanting to know outcome
Now lawyers are after them
Worried about their income …

Happiest are the judges
Who at the Bar were worried
Beyond incomes and outcomes
They are safe and salaried …
