TV Friends of Capital Punishment

TV Friends of Capital Punishment

The best shows star the worst people
What better end to a sad life
Than great drama on live TV?

Will the serial killer simper?
The bereaved widower sneer?
Can the wife book the program’s proceeds, or
A firing squad fire the director?

See – the crime re-enacted
Spy – on the vengeful jury
Suss out – the technicians’ anguish as the needle bared
Watch – the eyes roll up and the ears smoke
Spot – families vanquished and triumphant
Glimpse – judges hugging prosecutors
Grasp – the last seconds

Then take in the feast of syringes and silence
The short science of mortal vengeance

All brought to you by your friends at the Lottery
Who know for certain life is a crapshoot
Thanks again to you, brave punters
Our happy, haunted viewers
Ignorance works for free
And so do we
