The M&A partner at dinner
Said “IPO’s closing this winter!”
‘Twas clear from their eyes
That some of these guys
Would spend their Christmas at the printer.
It’s too bad your witness withdrew
Because of 609(a)(2).
His dishonest act
(false statement in fact)
Meant impeachment had to ensue.
When I tell you my job’s not okay
You sneer and reply “but the pay!”
All through the day
I do M&A
And wonder where I went astray.
There once was a sheriff in Texas
Who swore to both serve and protect us
But two nurses with whistles
Led to his dismissal
According to my Lexis-Nexis.
I deposed once a witness from Venus,
Her answers were fine, but between us,
I took her to lunch,
And now have a hunch,
I might need to send more subpoenas.
