Solar System Poems 24: How Do You Plead?

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,
despite news to the 
and even a 
of responsibility by a 
it is not clear that a 
was even 

And if there were one, 
my client remains innocent. 

What is she accused of,
having an alias?
It was used without her permission.
You'd take one too if your name
were so closely associated with
Being ambitious?
Indeed not. The media projected
ambition onto her.

If anything, my client was being stalked.

She bears a more than
superficial resemblance 
to the alleged victim.
Similar size,
similar airs,
similar background.

It would be more productive
for you to interrogate
the Easter Bunny.
