John Joseph Adams In Court

Yesterday, on Twitter:
@johnjosephadams Jury duty tomorrow, that, I don't have a problem with. But 8am! What in holy hell? If I wanted to get up at 8am, I'd have a real job!

@inkhaven: @johnjosephadams oh no, you do have to go? well, civic duty all that. shame civic duty has to get you up so early though!

@johnjosephadams: @inkhaven Yeah, and jeeze, I have BE THERE by 8, that means I'll have to be up by like 6:30 or something!

@inkhaven: @johnjosephadams can you feel the sympathy waves radiating at you from all of us with day jobs? ;)

ME: @inkhaven And songs. There should be songs unto him. @johnjosephadams

ME: @inkhaven Yes. I'll write one tonight. A hymn/song parody. I'll post it on my blog when it's done.

And so I have. I give you: "A Hymn to John Joseph Adams While He Is At Jury Duty."

(to the tune of "Angels We Have Heard On High")
John Joseph Adams has
Jury duty today
All of us in Twitterland
Send sympathy waves and we pray

John
Joseph Adams
Has to go to jury duty
John
Joseph Adams
Has to go to jury duty

"What in holy hell?" says he
He has to be there at 8
So we sing a song for thee
And hope you won't be there too late...

Audio to follow later today. Listen to the audio here.

Please excuse some audio wierdness. The original music tracks I found liked to crackle. Not sure what that was about. I did what I could. If I track down a better track, I'll re-do. For the moment, enjoy this version.
