Mercy for a Murderer

I don’t like this man,
But nobody deserves to live with this burden.
No brother and hated by the nation,
Sedated, unable to have that important conversation.

He was manipulated,
His brother threw him in,
That is where it gets complicated,
His world begins to spin.

Yes he deserves death,
But I am still human.
Only a little older than I am,
And here he is, the sacrificial lamb.

His family hates him,
They can’t believe he would do such a thing.
Justice will be served, he is aware of what he has done,
Trapped in a hospital bed, nowhere to run.
