Day Jobs


There’s not a lot of sympathy for lawyers

Humble is not a word that comes to mind

Nor is gracious, nor is kind


But an assumption that words are for sale

To mean one thing or the other depending

On who’s paying, who’s not


Some that I have known only busted chops

But most just wanted a day job with clean

Hands and puzzles to solve


Hoping to make a buck or two and maybe

Occasionally – by happenstance, by luck –

A small victory at day’s end


And then heading home to family and self

Finding no room between themselves and

The guy delivering pizza


Except that people sure look forward to him
