The girl inside is aching
She wants to see Shania,
Live for the first time in two years,
Alas! A greater calling has stricken.
A purpose past myself.
And though I am not so naive
As to believe she will know me
As anything more, or less,
Than a dancing speck in the distance,
But, I do believe she can appreciate
the reason I chose better law school grades
Over a night of pure joy.
But, why do I have to pay, to learn
And serve my country on the bench?
