Volume 20, Issue 1
To get anywhere these days
It seems a clerkship’s a necessity
An expo here, a summit there
It may well be the end of me
I lied to the interviewers
Said I’d like to help the poor
I hope it isn’t obvious
I’m here for corporate law
Enough about me – how about you
What can you do for me?
I would like to discuss the culture here
And of course, my salary
On my way out of the top tier
I shook the partner’s hand
My grip was firm, I held his gaze
Winked and said: “I think you know my dad”
I’ll miss the oh-so-moral high ground
Of the student society
But these are just the things you do
When you’re law school royalty.
