Mishap With A Chainsaw
Hapless Hank severed a leg just below the knee,
When usin' a chainsaw heedlessly, you see!
He sued claimin' that it was a defective saw,
And hired an attorney to check the law.
"I've reviewed the statutes and I can't take yer case.
I'd recommend you plead mea culpa to save face."
"If yer case was heard by a judge it would rile his fury,
And I ain't about to bring such a case before a jury!"
"My law firm has determined that yer case is mighty weak.
Sorry, Hank, you ain't got a leg to stand on, so to speak!"
