That's A Nice Living.

They assure you when they take your case
they will put your world right back in place.
So you shoulder the cost,
then they tell you: "We lost."
with such touching dismay on their face.

    Great limerick, Gerard. They do seem to feign sadness on behalf of their clients' losses. Congratulations on your win! The competition was awesome and every contestant deserves a round of applause. Love, Carolyn
