T’was the night before New Year’s and all through the town,
Not a lawyer was stirring, not even to frown.
The briefs were all filed and pleadings were pled,
All matters were closed and docs put to bed.
The clients were happy,
their work was on track
They knew, come what may, the firm had their back.
When suddenly out of the blue came new clients
With urgent requests to ensure their compliance.
