Well here you are โ€” you really should have known
That they were bound to get you in the end.
Theyโ€™re like a dog thatโ€™s gnawing at a bone
And wonโ€™t let go โ€” and you โ€” you wouldnโ€™t mend
Your ways. You made it clear you wouldnโ€™t bend;
You wouldnโ€™t cave in to the crazy crowd.
Itโ€™s true you managed for some time to fend
Them off โ€” held your head high; you never bowed
To them or their false claims. No doubt your proud
Defiant stance just made them hate you more.
But souls so quiet are drowned out by the loud,
So: โ€œGuilty!โ€ said the twelve, and itโ€™s the law,
That guilty men must suffer for their sins.
Condemned โ€” itโ€™s only now your trial begins.

โ€” D.N. Oโ€™Brien
