The Wise Client - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

A pleader in a Lordship's Court
Advised his defaulting client
'You say for every question
'Bey, Bey, ' as a dumb man.'

To every question in the Court
'Bey, Bey' replied the client.
'You're here, you know why? '
'Bey, Bey.'

'Did you borrow money? '
'Bey, Bey.'
'Why you failed to pay? '
'Bey, Bey.'

'Cheating is a crime, I say.'
'Bey, Bey.'
'You'll go to jail if you don't pay.'
'Bey, Bey.'

The pleader interfered
And said, 'My Lord,
Never borrowed, my client,
And he's quite innocent.'

'He's, by birth, a dumb man,
And a penniless poor man.
Who'll give this man broken
Such an unsecured loan? '

'No evidence is found
Nor there's any loan bond.
Therefore, there's no cause
To hold this useless case.'

The Court dismissed the case.
To the pleader's demand for fees.
'Bey, Bey, ' the client said with ease,
And walked out to his surprise.

    PS Srimat Swami Bhuteshanadaji Maharaj was most witty and fun loving Maharaj and on humor a book has been published as ‘Rashabodh’ [in Bengali]
