 ramblings and things

No Win No Fee

No Win No Fee they call it
And it's such a cause of shame
In todays strange society where
It's somebody else to blame.
Nobody wants to accept
Responsibility for any action,
Who can I sue these days
Being the usual reaction.
Burn yourself spilling coffee
Blame yourself not
Just sue the vendor for
Selling it to you too hot.

He should have realised
You're probably a clumsy fool
And sold you a coffee
That's more than a little cool.
Somewhere a Legal Advisor
Rubs his hands with glee
Raking in his slice of
Your award, No Win No Fee.

The soldier in combat
In the modern day strife
Reacts as he's been trained
To save his comrades life.
Many years later
Over passage of time
Can find he's been accused
Of  historic War Crime.
And the past is revisited
As he fights to stay free
From an action that's funded
Courtesy of No Win No Fee.

The hard eyed legal functionary
In his well tailored business suit
Watches the cash roll in
From his speculative fruit
And cares not a fig about
Any ex squaddie like me
As hecontinues to exploit
Hus Golden apple No Win No Fee
