APED: "they hanged john brown"

"They hanged John Brown," the killer said.
"That thought should give you pause.
They hanged John Brown because he dared
to fight his noble cause.
They hanged John Brown, so you should see
that what I know is true:
history will smile on me. And it will spit on you."

"They hanged John Brown," the jailer said.
"You're right, that much is true.
They hanged John Brown. But don't forget:
they hanged assholes, too."
