My case ended early
So I quickly packed my files
To return to my office;
The next matter might not go so well.

 “Wait” says the Judge
Why such a hurry
You won your case;
“and by the way, how is business?”

I said too busy
Can’t find help
No one wants to work the way I want;
Or do the work I do.

He responded
“That makes no sense”
But his clerk knew;
“He’s right about being too busy.”

“Look at the unemployment numbers”
I heard as I exited
And wondered;
Which one of us doesn’t understand?
