The unplaceable case – an ode to the pro bono coordinator


To place the unplaceable case
To call the unreachable clerk
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To court where the poor dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To fax pure and chaste from afar
To type when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I’ll only be true
To this glorious case
That my volunteer will be peaceful and calm
While I keep my mad pace

And the world will be better for this
That one coord’nator, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with her last ounce of courage
To place the unplaceable case

-Adapted from “The Impossible Dream”
