Byrne v Boadle

Here's another classic tort case - ENJOY!

It was the Defendant's building he was passing by
when a barrel of flour fell from the sky
It struck the Plaintiff in the head
but he wasn't quite dead.
The probable cause of this mess
was a mystery to the Plaintiff, Defendant, and Witness
Res Ipsa Loquitor the judge explained,
to a reasonable jury, but the Defendant complained
An accident is no tort
you must tell this court
No one would dare
to question my standard of care.
For it was his barrel
that caused the Plaintiff such peril
Negligence is the answer to this dispute question
the verdict for the plaintiff will ease all this tension
He thought his defense was as flawless as silk
but you just can't deny the trout in the milk
