Wednesday #limerick: brutal, sullen, trust (HAPPY!)

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick based on a prompt from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: brutal, sullen, trust. (I see that Rallentanda left a comment at 3WW which said "No one can make a happy poem out of these words!" Challenge accepted!)

The lawyer? A sullen old pill.
The waiting? 'twas brutal, but still,
Now I'm twenty-one
It's time for some fun!
My trust fund has ninety-eight mil!
