Being for the Benefit of Mr. Assange

For the benefit of Mr. A.
There will be a trial today on Facebook stream.
The socialists will all be there
Late of Workers & Welfare – what a scene!
By slanders, lies and allegations,
Lastly through ordeal by Puritan bile:
In this way Mr. A. will answer the world!

The much maligned Mr. A.
Goes online this Saturday to learn his fate.
The MeToo-ists will shout and shriek
As Mr. A. tries to speak – don’t be late!
Messrs. J. and H. assure the public
Their show-trial will be second to none;
As they boast Stalin’s ghost dances a waltz!

The trial is under British law
But politicians lock the door without a sound.
As Mr. A. will demonstrate,
Extradition will not wait on sovereign ground!
Having been seven years incarcerated
Guantanamo Bay will feel like home;
And tonight the U.S. Right is footing the bill!

– after John Lennon
