The Lyrics

Anybody here seen that guy named Orenthal?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I think he killed two people and both of them were young
I just looked, Nicole and Ron are gone

Anybody here seen that Sniper, John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He killed alot of people with another who was young
I just looked and all those folks are gone

Anybody here seen that lady Martha?
Can you tell me where she's gone?
She fed alot of people and I miss her egg foo young
I just looked at TV and she's gone

Didn't you watch the juries that tried them?
What kind of justice is there for you and me
OJ went free
And how much time are they gonna give Martha

Anybody here seen that guy named Orenthal
Can you tell me where he's gone
I thought I saw him practice his swing on the hill
But I didn't see Martha and John

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Royce. It took a second , for me to place Orenthal. I'm of those people who like Martha, she's gotten into a pickle, but I can't help but admire the business she built from scratch.

Diva, thanks for reading my parody; I just thought it was interesting, three different people, three very different people, and all sat in front of a jury; with varying outcomes. I'm with you on Martha.

You're putting Martha in the same boat as OJ and the DC snipers? Come on, Royce, she didn't make THAT kind of "killing"!

Shoot ! I liked it.

I generally avoid any Martha Stewart parodies, as they tend to make my blood pressure go up, but I thought I'd take a peek at this since Pippin voted. Not bad! :-)

(voted earlier, today) Ah, but Royce, those three very different people also sat before three very different juries. I suspect that even Dahmer would have been found not guilty by OJ's jury -- and that's even if he'd been gnawing on a human leg and using a hollowed out severed head for a coffee mug throughout the trial. ;) I haven't taken any side, beyond "now that she's been found guilty, give her the same penalty you'd give a nobody like me" but I thought you did a really good job of expressing the collective voice of one side of this issue (I came away with a better understanding of it, anyway) and I really like your song choice for it.

Michael P---I'm not putting Martha in the same boat, I'm pointing out how ludicrous it is that OJ's out playing golf and she's looking at possible time in the slammer
