Silence in Court

The lawyer speaks with legal ease
Each clause and covenant conveyed
Intently quoting precedent
On proofs and evidence displayed

On the plaintiff are assumptions
Of which eye witness claims infer
A case in point strains argument
Which trial by reason must concur

In concluding final summaries
Each submission duly tested
A Judge gives guidance to the jury
On balance verdicts best contested

In locked rooms discussions under strain

On the merits either way
Where the burden of the final word
Not one but all must have their say
