The Lyrics

This and my other post today are rewrites of earlier efforts; I delivered them at this event on Sunday
The guy’s name is Vlad, he’ll make you squirm
After you’ve engaged his attorney’s firm.
Dark midday windows and chronic coughin’ snore (that’s a homophonic chore)
Should give knowledge that his man’ll want to swig some gore.
He says “habeas corpus” so knowingly;
Discovery informs you: he’s from Hungary.
He says “habeas corpus” like Lugosi;
Your fetching neck, he gazes at it hungrily.

The office boy has a troubling mark
On his glugged jugular, and his eyes are dark.
By contrast, his skin looks mighty blanched,
Lacking tan, as if Bram’s vamp clamped, champed and the lad’s lanced.
Your corporeal features he longs to see—
Your rosy throat, he gazes at it hungrily.
He hopes to open your gorge so lustily;
You’ll soon regret that you acted so trust-ingly.

Making lawyer jokes is a fun game,
It’s an easy profession to defame.
Some lawyers have expensive cars and suits,
Because they have bled you dry and scarfed up all your loot.
They pass the bar exam, then bleed metaphorically,
But in the case of this law firm, it’s literally.
With some self-examination, retrospectively,
The kid quips wittily: “Wish he’d not bitten me!”

Your legal colleague first gets a lethal grip;
He calls you “partner” as he starts to sip.
At this point, you wish that he’d been weaned--
Your pinpoint-stripe collar now need be cleaned.
He’s messed up your shirt so ruddily,
The last thing that you want is to dress grungily.
He gives a caress that’s so cuddly
Because on your carotid he fressed spongily.

Your blood’s so rich. . .streams from the vent,
Your sockets look burrowed; you’ve got pallorment.
His throat is bloated, bolstering your pall.
When he is finished, you will be at his beck and call.
He’s down to spittle; a drainee trainee
Is your role till you have bloodsucking mastery.
He’s downed liquid vittles—”B” repast spree,
You’ll swill your fill and take bloodsucking past theory.

A wan man, you no more act sanguinely,
At night you sop it up sanguinarily.
Your soul has become fettered and you are a ghoul,
Piehole’s full of red wetness—hemoglobin drool.
You now are going for it jugularly,
You quit your day job, ’cause you live nocturnally.
You are making a change professionally;
You now have credentials to be an attorney.

WHEW! Was *so* afraid that you'd beaten me to the Al Gore parody that I'm posting tomorrow (Friday)... hey, no fair doing it now, just 'cuz I let that cat-hound out of the bag...

A G&S that I DKTOS, but anything that shreds lawyers gets $555/hr from me, as they themselves usually do, for doing nothing, and doing it poorly, to boot. (I have to proofread their work and correct it -- *seriously*.) Blood-sucking vampires was a perfect metaphor. Kudos.

Many thanks, TT. What do you call one dead lawyer at the bottom of a lake? A good start.

Why don't sharks bite lawyers? Professional courtesy.

Why did they switch from rats to lawyers for testing new drugs?
1) There's already far too many of them
2) The technicians are less likely to become emotionally attached to them, and
3) There are some things a rat just won't do.

What does a lawyer use for birth control? His personality.

SERIOUS story, just *today*: Was considering hiring one who had come highly recommended by one of his colleagues. In his e-mail to me, he referred to the "judge's" (sic) and "court's" (sic) in the plural meaning, not the possessive. Told him that anyone who passed the LSAT, graduated law school, and passed the Bar exam should know that simple plurals don't take apostrophes. idiot. (didn't hire him.)
