Frozen In A Court Room - Senryu Series

'Your Honour' he said
'When black stones smashed my windscreen
I froze at the wheel'

'You did not react
Very surprising young man
Here ice does melt fast'

'Your Honour - I agree
About the ice melting part
My son threw the stone'

(Judge in an aside to his Assistant)

'Why is he in court
What indeed is the offence
He is being tried for'

'Elementary Sir
His son has just stoned your car
He is a minor'

'In that case I do
Decree that the father does
Double time in jail'
