The Circle - Part VII - Faye.

She could be Atlas, but she's tiny,
timidly peeking at her potential
makes her nose twitch and appear more whiny:
Self-doubt is never a good credential.
To boost herself, she scurries off to the class.
Cautiously scuttling forward with her guides
She nervously asks about if she'll pass.
She sees her court shoes shine as she boldly strides
Into the court room, wig and flowing gown:
Prosecuting barrister for the crown.

Bulstrode Whitelocke, English lawyer, writer, parliamentarian and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal of England, was born today in 1605.

Henry Bathurst, 2nd Earl Bathurst, British lawyer and politician, died today in 1794.
