Question of the Week

Share Your Haiku About Life as a Lawyer or Law Student

  • Print

Last week, we noted that the city of San Francisco banned Happy Meals at the same time McDonald’s brought back the McRib for a limited time. The latter occasion was marked by readers of the Los Angeles Times Money & Company blog by posting in the comments of one post haiku that expressed both their affection for McRib sandwiches and their awareness that they really shouldn’t eat them. One example:

Sweet death rides pale bread
Shall we go to pork heaven?
Then lead on, McRib

This week, we’d like to ask you for haiku related to your life as a lawyer or law student. This is more than we usually ask of you, but we think you’re up to the task. Remember, it’s five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables.
