(sigh) it’s Love Litigating Lawyers Day

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 12:04 pm

As we discussed rather fully one year ago today, August 31st has been declared to be ”Love Litigating Lawyers Day.”   Even our friends at would grudgingly admit that litigating lawyers are often a necessary evil in our society and justice system.  Nonetheless, the f/k/a Gang would much prefer to celebrate Love Mitigating Lawyers Day, along with Love Literary Lawyers Day (such as all those poets).  Until we can, we offer senryu about a lawyer or two.
