Leaf Briefs

Underwear used to be a fig leaf Then somebody invented the brief I think it’s absurd To name it that word I mean, what’s briefer than a leaf? Was it named by a white collar thief? Like a lawyer who longed to be chief? I could see his purport When he said in court “Your Honor, I’ll make this brief, brief, brief.” “First of all, I would not use a leaf As our skivvies’ business motif.” He then rests his brief case And picks up his briefcase That held leafs of briefs, and the chief’s briefs.
