One Word Prompt from Kristian – Negotiate

A word that lawyers often hate

I’m talking about negotiate

They would rather up the bond

For their benefit and beyond

If involved in dispute

Be careful to recruit

A barrister of good repute

One that cares and not refute

The basic tenets of established law

But take as written, observed in awe

Studious lawyers are the best

Discard the fancy and the rest

One eager to negotiate what’s fair

From their seat beside you there.
