The Tsarnaev Defense

... asked-would-you-jump-off-a-bridge-if-your-friend-was-doing-it-too.png

Prosecution's wrapping up Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's trial
And, although we know he's guilty, it took them awhile.
His defense will make their case in just a day or 2.
They've already said the allegations made are true.

All that's left to argue now is if the boy should die
Or if he's a victim, too...  Manipulated by
Tamerlan, his older brother, and the crimes he did
Do not merit death because Dzhokhar was just a kid.

Mother was deported and divorcing his sick dad;
All alone - his parents gone - his brother all he had.
Thus, despite the horrors at the Boston Marathon,
Defense plans to argue that Dzhokhar was just a pawn.

As the mom of teenage boys, I'd buy that argument...
If my older son jumped off a bridge, as down he went,
Right behind - I'm pretty sure - his "little" brother would
Follow without pausing to consider if he should.
