Statement of the Defendant

"Statement of the Defendant"

As I stand under oath I was asked to recall my crime of that most brilliant of all.

"I am caught what else can I say? Would you have me this day drop to my knees and beg? Yes! I lured your children, deceived the elderly, they absorbed my sweet melody and followed me for my specialty. I brought them in, they were all impressed, but I must feed and then digest. The children would play with toys from the chest, the elderly I gave tea, only the best. They became so enthralled they forgot about me, time to get to work with delight, full speed. I grabbed a wire, I slipped behind, around their necks it became entwined. Their heads they bobbed a gurgled plea, something about 'Oh god why me?' It's really important to not waste a thing, down to the basement to cook and sing! On the table to prepare them is fine, plenty of time, dinners not 'til five. When the banquet starts it will be sublime! The most magnificent roast you ever did feast, the special ingredient, your children, such beasts. The elderly although slow to entice and taste like tripe, on occasion old gents carry some spice. I took his meat and made a stew, from all their skins I made some shoes. I have had many parties this is true, I invited nearly every. One. Of. You. You danced and laughed and as I speak these words you realize your past. Judge me now from your liars chair, if it's all the same, you had your share!"

Author's Note
I have a whole bunch od story poems with this character. One of my favorites that I have created. I go back to him from time to time to greet him with wine and help his cannibalistic crimes.
