Am a Lawyer by calling;

And Make a decent living;

I had a nagging feeling;

Was there a crisis again brewing?

That Computer, I had kept ,to flaunt ;

Is it back again ,to haunt?

First they said try the mail;

Just a click and it won't fail !

I mustered courage and went along;

The mail reached,where it belonged !!

My heart was filled with abundant pride;

Said I, None can take me for a ride!

Hold on Papa!! you have Just sent a Mail,

Not launched a nuclear Missile!!!

Then the machine went to rest;

It did gather a lot of dust;

Till the Online guys came around,

And Tried to gain some solid ground.

Keep pace sir, with the times;

Don't be stuck with just the tomes!

Your friends have said, It is fine;

You ought to fall in line!!

This was not that so bad;

For me to feel very sad;

If I could hit the right Site;

It did give me lots to Cite!!

I was now opening up;

Things were also looking up;

A laptop now like everyone else;

For mail and search,but nothing else!!!

Books and files were lugged along;

Life was quietly chugging along!

Am now on the wrong side of fifty;

Need to keep the flow going in my Kitty!

Then came the news one day;

About the hearing ,the following Day!!

Not to go to the court room sir;

Speak from within your office room sir!

A simple App to download Sir,

No it doesn't Sap your energy Sir !!!

Papers will be scanned and mailed,

You just follow the email trail !!

Am a lawyer by calling;

I still make a decent living;

There is no nagging feeling;

That a crisis is brewing !!!
