Episode 2: The Trial – Lyrics
The scene begins in a court room in Zanzibar’s palace. Sebastian, having been captured by Zanzibar, must now stand trial in his court system. Magistrate Lord Witherow presides, and Sebastian huddles with his court-provided attorney at the defense table. Solicitor Proton stands ready as the prosecutor with his team of lawyers behind him. The jury looks on with anticipation.
Bailiff: “All Rise for the honorable Magistrate Lord Witherow as he prepares to issue the verdict in the trial of the wicked Sebastian for high crimes against Lake Panic.”
The Jury: “What kind of court is this? The verdict comes first?”
Sebastian: “So this it? This is the process? I get no defense? What will happen to me?”
Sebastian’s Attorney: “I don’t get these trials. You haven’t got much chance, but you will get a brief defense after the sentence.”
Sebastian: “After the sentence? Shit!”
Magistrate Lord Witherow: “In judging the case of the wicked cruelty of Sebastian, addressing his alleged crimes of aggressive intent against Lake Panic, I find him guilty of all such charges and sentence him to death.”
The Jury: “What kind of court is this? This ain’t a fair trial.”
The prosecution presents its arguments.
Solicitor Proton: “Sebastian. He’s bad. He’s bad. Must die. He’s bad. So bad. Much proof that he’s bad. Much proof. He’s bad. Must die. He’s bad. He’s bad. So bad. He’s bad”
Sebastian: “I am before you in humble judgment. Lend me your ear. They came to my peaceful home and seized my love, and took her here. And if you were in my hooves
and the same thing happened to you, if they took your love so true, you do the same fuckin thing too!”
The Jury: “We find the defendant innocent of the crime.
What kind of court is this? Its just a recommendation? What?”
Magistrate Lord Witherow: “The recommendation is rejected. The sentence now applies to the jury, and they too shall share Sebastian’s fate.”
