A Summons to Court

August 7, 2008
My Dear Friar Lawrence
You’ll be cheerless to learn
Your behavior of late has caused me concern
For you see, my good Friar
Your story inspires
A tad bit unpleasant a turn
We here in Verona are distressed to uncover
Your part in the death of two star-crossed lovers
Who recently fell
To a terrible spell
Of joint suicide, our sources discover
Rumor has said
That you lost your head
And misplaced a letter of import
Now two teens are dead
When they could have fled
And now we must send you a summons to court
Both families, of course, have standing to sue
(The Capulet and Montague)
So tomorrow at six, come bright and clean
To Fair Verona,
Where we laid our scene.

Finally some body points out how none of this disaster would have happened. I love the silly seriousness of a lawyer speech about it to well done and congratulations!!!!
