The Ballad of Fraser Allonby Q.C., Barrister-At-Law (Other) by wFraser Allonby Q.C.w
Each and every morn I wake And rouse myself from sleep. I stretch and yawn, and stretch again, Then out of bed I leap. Into my pantaloons I strap My heaving, sweaty frame. I'm Fraser Allonby Q.C.: Well knows the world my name. My larder groans with sweet delights With which I'll break my fast. I gorge on buns and pies and ale And relish my repast. I stroll into my robing room Wherein forthwith I dress My bulk in courtly finery: I wear only the best. I place upon my head so large My newly powdered wig, And hide within black folds of gown My hindquarters so big. I prance into the morn so fair And heave my bulk to court Wherein I speak of equity, And negligence, and tort. My clients pay me by the hour And augment my vast riches. I spend my wealth on whores and port And jewel-encrusted britches. All the comments that I post Are more or less the same I'm Fraser Allonby Q.C.: Well knows the world my name.

Up the ladder: Witch's Brew
Down the ladder: Parody Of Sadness

That is splendid.

So you have time to write that but no time for a mug of wallop later in inner temple?

You shameful fraud!

Is it still the case that any law student must dine at least 24 times in inner temple before being allowed to qualify?
How would he know? He's not a lawyer. And neither I am. You see, it's all been a hideous misunderstanding. I'm not a barrister; I'm a barista (i.e. an employee of a coffee shop).

Your legs are too fat to suuport you in a job where you would have to be on your feet all day.

You are a failed thin person.

Surely my weeble-like figure ensures that I can wobble around the coffee shop without falling over.

I declare it to be the most whimsical jape of the season!!! -6-
Have you been employed by Her Majesty's Commission for Numbers to improve the image of the number six? I can think of no other explanation for your recent obsession with the said number. -6-

ok, i am sure that this was written before the premier of the TV show "Boston Legal", but Will Shatner's character (Denny Crane) comes to mind here.
well done, a riotous romp at pomp!

When I was checking the charts to find the best, i noted your poem ranking -1. Curiously I read it, and must say, hats off to you! you did a wonderful job on that - barrister or not. Hmmm, now for a hot cup of coffee....please may I have one.

OK I suppose. The final word of the last line of the penultimate stanza would be funnier if it were "bitches".

Quite OK I suppose.

"I wear only the best" could've been better. Yeah, that line sucks. The rest, flows like stuff that flows good.
