A Future Court Case

He looked guilty as sin,
standing in the dock
as the evidence slowly
mounted.
A dozen fresh looking
youngsters testified
with candour beaming
from their cherubic
faces, making his
punishment unescapable.
The jury, not consisting
of his peers, how could they be,
only went away for ten minutes,
just long enough to make
snide remarks about him,
over their soothing, sugary drinks.
Once properly hyped up,
they unanimously found him guilty.
Then, the socially, servile judge
sentenced him, and sent
him, for his own good,
to a bootcamp,
just to toughen up.
There he would be able to
contemplate for months
on his most heinous
of crimes; being helpful
to the elderly.
