A Moment, Please, Your Honour

Updated on January 25, 2019

Regret or Remorse?

1. It all began when I thought I had a plan

    I wanted to be great but didn't want to really wait

    The song of easy wealth almost always took away my breath

    And I fell among friends that taught me never to make amends

    Life was sweeter than my best girlfriend on twitter

    I had it all: Wealth, women, and boy! Had I a ball!!

    Many died trying to stop my growing pride

    And I never believed that I was only being deceived

    I had no disregard for race, creed or colour...

    And er.... A moment, please, your Honour!

 

2. I know I don't deserve what I tried so hard not to preserve

   The blood of the many I killed; The breath of the many I stilled 

   I tried so hard really to be as bad as I could ever be truly

   And the beauty of it all was my seeming lack of any sense of reality

   The Jury can attest to the fact that I am very bloody

   Some have tasted my fury for daring to call me a nonentity

   I have achieved so much evil - never have I tried to be civil

   And gunned down many a foe, to leave them lying just before my big toe

   Don't be daft, Mr. Defense Lawyer, it's not a mere rumour

    Er...Just a moment, please, your honour!

 

3. What a life I've lived devoid of all sane reason

    Not until I met the just, holy and utterly respectable Parson

    He showed no fear of me just a tiny smirk of pity

    And I learnt from him the story of my coming glory

   I am not afraid to face my Judgment - I deserve no mercy

   But I want you all to know that I am good and ready!

   If God has forgiven me, what more can I fear?

   I only regret taking from among you those you hold so dear!

   I am done with my story; proceed Mr. Prosecutor

   And er... You may now sentence me, Your Honour!
