Dogs Can’t Practice Law

By Austin Blessing

I don’t want a dog with a J.D.,
What use would that be to me?

Fido is good at catching a ball,
But he cannot practice law.

I need a lawyer to free me from jail,
Not one that chases his own tail.

I desire a lawyer able in the law,
Not one that fancies a tennis ball.

Bottom line, I need a lawyer, dawg,
But I do not need a lawyer dog.
