Kangaroo Court

Brush the dust of my shirt and tie
Swear an oath to a perverted lie
Raise me up, put me down
Arraign me, for the loss you found
Recite your evidence to the crown
As the jester laughs with clowns
Entertain the crowd, public execution
As cheers filter through the pollution
We the kangaroos, find him guilty
An innocent man, synthetic committee
I did what you were too brave to do
Hang me. I am nothing like you
