A Moment, Please, Your Honour
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!
