Bankruptcy Bill

Bankruptcy Haiku

Bill enjoys writing haiku as a release from the pressures of the bankruptcy law world.  In keeping with the tradition of the great zen bankruptcy masters, please feel free to add to the chain by writing your own haiku in the comments section below.

****************

Gliding underneath

The great shark’s belly, I wait

For the conflict work

****************

Overripe cherries

Draw boughs of Chrysler low with

Ball bearing pressure

***************

Over one hundred

Lawyers in court for Chrysler

At billing rate of?

***************

The swirl of first-day

Motions cause faintness amidst

The humid spring air

***************

No “Bankruptcy” group

Listed on firm’s website. Ah,

yes, “Restructuring”

****************

Voting procedures

Lack clear instructions for when

No vote indicated

***************

Met him on Lehman

Name is lost, wish ABI

Name cards were bigger

****************

Tonight I must draft

Eleven first day motions

Thank God for templates

****************

Anxiously I rise

To represent my client

In Judge Beatty’s court

***************

For your enjoyment

The NCBJ presents

The Doobie Brothers?

****************

Patiently you sat

Absorbing the details of

Claims and balloting

****************

Great work courts success.

Yet one  thing still irks Lynn.  “It’s

Mr. Lopucki.”

***************

Commencement of case

Served on all creditors but

Surely I missed one

****************

To write all weekend

But convey nothing. ‘Tis my

Disclosure statement

****************

Consumers suffer

But my main worry: How to

pronounce BAPCPA?

****************

Many times I hear

“Yes, I’m in bankruptcy.”

The joke grows old

****************

Indignation and

Litigation all for two

Cents on the dollar

****************

Soaring overhead

They gather in Bowling Green

To tear at the meat

****************
