Attorney


The Attorney is in the room
Blue and silver suit
Gleams.

The couple stares at him.
They don't know where this is
Going.

Anger and betrayal
Marked their lives to this
Point.

Tempers flare and desperation
Builds In the room.
The Attorney
Waits.

His skill is not the written solution,
But the finality,
As one picks him up and
Fires.

    Btw - just read your other post about the car, and for some reason I can't comment on the page, but my goodness... sounds awful. Great write, sucky memory. (To understate it mildly.)
