Cross examined at length

I confessed to it all:

The owrds made no sense

But the attention was magnetic,

No twisting of fingers

No gouges in the eyes,

Just absolute obedience,

Was my end-all effort

And for my pains

They brought cups of water

And towels to wipe my face–

Scream now, they shouted,

And thespian that I am,

Bellowed out ersatz agony.

Oh my god! I cried,

Wringing my freed hands,

Eyes shut I rocked my chair

And cursed Heaven & Hell,

And when the door shut

I peeked to see my compatriots

Staring, pointing at my shame.

So much for embracing the legal truth!
