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 feminists 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 some years incarcerated
Guantanamo Bay will feel like home;
And tonight the U.S. Right is footing the bill!

– after John Lennon
