The victim had said, “eat me for dinner.”
But the Court ruled it a killing,
That was gruesome and chilling
And called Armin Meiwes a yarn-spinner.
The sentence left Armin in disquiet.
Pondering, should he now change his diet?
But salad and soup,
Made his spirit soon droop,
When his stomach, protesting, went on riot!
Independent Online 10/05/06: A cannibal, Armin Meiwes, who killed and ate an apparently willing male victim has been convicted of murder and jailed for life after a German court overturned a conviction of manslaughter on the grounds it was too lenient.
