Chop Fuey Harvard Prof Wants Treble On $4 Takeput Overcharge

Sadly we have forgotten scripted wisdom of Dick the Butcher’s insight
We must kill all the lawyers if we will ever make things right
From the high school in Oklahoma appealing to a judge to a loss overturn
To an Associate Harvard Prof on a four dollar overcharge doing an incendiary burn
We too quickly to the legal system seek to have our issues resolve
Instead of discussing an issue to the lawyers it quickly devolves
This Harvard prof wants to sue for treble damages because he was clipped
At this amount rationality begins to lose its grip
The news article indicated it was a website failing to prices change
The owner indicated the overcharge refund he would ASAP arrange
But since the Harvard colors are Crimson, the same color as blood running though our veins
Not enough and the smart and civil way to solve this mistake our prof would not deign
If this is how Harvard gives guidance on how to resolve disputes
Seems like there common sense has taken a major dilute
That may be why academia is called the ivory tower
Too high up and has lost all common sense reasoning power
