Guilty (Limerick)

How tragic the defense used delusion
Tried to sway the jury by illusion
Evident are the facts
Of these murderous acts
And now GUILTY, the only conclusion

Posted for Three Word Wednesday
Prompt : Evident, Illusiion, Tragic.

Important subject nicely executed.

We can only hope that illusion and delusion don't produce collusion.

Hi Elaine. You stopped by my blog and asked me to check out your limerick, voicing concern about your last line not being humorous. While it's preferable to have a funny last line, sometimes you can get away without one if you otherwise tighten up your meter. I hope you don't mind my playing with your meter a bit:

How tragic! Defense used delusion
Hoped the jury would fall for illusion.
But the evident facts
Of these murderous acts
Shouted GUILTY, the only conclusion.
