Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

Only learned lawyers will effectively pilot their lives in the onrushing future. So what is a learned lawyer?
learned - "having much knowledge; scholarly; erudite." - dictionary.com
