I sauntered out of an Irish Pub
Basted in booze and Irish smooze
The whiskeys sure didn’t cover the blues
Me, I knew this wasn’t good news

As a crossed the street
I met a bus, Full of nuns, all in a fuss
There was no contest, the bus sure won
I was run over and ready for a place with no sun

I arrived in hell, this surly no surprise
At least I was drunk, or so Satan surmised
He looked confused and asked who am I?
A Lawyer? a Dictator? or maybe I was both?

I apologized profusely for I surely was not
Any of those professions, I'm no in their lot
He asked if I was expecting 72 virgins?
As drunk as I was, I said I was not

He was angry and mad, there was doubt
What could the Devil do? He seemed in a stew
So he gave me a degree, in Law and Justice
So I could live in hell among all the others untrusted!

Notes: No Lawyers were hurt or maimed in the writing of this poem, and I apologize for that!

    Wow! Arthur. Lot of stuff going on in this one. A lawyer, a dictator, and the 72 virgins was a great reference. So you are apologizing because no lawyers were hurt? You, my friend are a funny man, and I enjoyed this one.... Robert.

    Very dark and truly revealing on our modern times my friend, love the ending the best of the whole write. But I must say I enjoyed the whole thing in it's entirity, I also wanted to let you know Mr. Poe that Mrs. Cheryl Anna Poe has finished her first holloween killer thriller, the city of lost souls, but you must wait until the 1 of October to read it, this will built up the suspence of the read I think, next I will be working on the Vamperic pray god do not save my soul, cheri lol

    Arthur, a true Irishman would have talked the devil into buying the next round. i had a good laugh at the disclaimer at the end of the poem.
