Canto 21. Barrators (November 2016)
(fourth incarnation)

Inferno canto 21 in the Commedia is reserved for barrators,
ambulance chasers who work the system in devious ways.
Apparently these lawyers have been around for a long time.
Dante thought they deserved to be placed at this level,
forever mired in pools of boiling tar, pitch as sticky
as the way they gum up our failing legal system.
