Ruses of a reluctant intern.

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

Suave and dapper,

quick to flatter,

he knew his way,

and groveled all day,

loath to labour ,

he curried favour,

sly as he was,

he concealed all flaws.


His senior was portly,

and bald as a coot,

the hue of his face ,

bore semblance to soot.


When asked to report

the word of the court,

the languid lump

refused to yield.

The lordly senior,

in a regal tenor,

blustered and bragged:

"When I was your age,

I came, I saw,

though rustic and raw,

I mastered the Law."


To which the intern then replied:

"Why, of course,

you are the king,

the ideal foil

for a lesser being,

you are so handsome,

and orate so well,

blessed I am,

truth to tell."


The senior was flattered,

and pleased as punch,

he took the intern

out for lunch,

and once the duo

had their fill,

the lazy bum

was paid a princely sum!
