A Two-handed Lawyer

My Lawyer’s ambidextrous,

With opinions very grand.

It’s always one or the other,

Never certain where I stand.


On the one hand, is possible,

On the other hand, may be.

You must choose the one that suits you.

When can you pay my fee?


But when it comes to payment,

He recovers full command.

He’s certainly ambidextrous,

Takes cheques in either hand.
