Appellate Insights

Dec 16, 2016 Laurie J. Hepler
A Holiday Poem

Hone your prose and keep it short

As you approach appellate court

Prune the verbiage,

Pitch your story!

Yacking earns you zero glory


Hook ’em soon with why you win

Own the high road, limit spin

Lead with strength and deal with snags

Inspire trust, avoid red flags

Demonstrate what’s right and fair

And fix on prejudicial error

Your first poetic seminar?

Sincerely yours, GMSR
