BULGER BOY MURDER TRIAL IN ENGLAND
On the day of the nausea inducing trial
The viscous crowd outside demanded
"Hang and quarter them!"
"Torture the little Eichmanns!"
As if the ten year old murderers
Were the masterminds of the final solution
Then the abyss of mankind
Darkened Even more
And the mercury plummeted
I shivered Like I was naked
In a sunless Arctic wasteland
When I saw the horror of the mob mentality
Through the lens of the BBC
