The scene: a packed courtroom, droning with low conversation. Media train their lenses at the witness box. The judge hammers his desk.
Judge: Order! ORDER! (crowd settles) We will now hear from the defendant.
A lanky gentlemen in Cathcart work clothes, basic farmer outfit, approaches the front of the courtroom. He sits. He leans in and taps the microphone in front of him, resulting in mild feedback. The mike is live.
Witness: I would like to say a few words here in my own defense.
Good things decompose,
The courtroom explodes in loud shouts and activity.
