The State of Virginia executed Christopher Emmett last week for beating a co-worker to death with a lamp so he could steal his money to buy crack.
His last words: "Tell the Governor he just lost my vote. Y'all hurry this along. I'm dying to get out of here."
This was even better than Tim McVeigh quoting the line about being "the captain of my fate" from the poem "Invictus."
If there's any time when you are NOT the captain of your fate, it is just before you are executed pursuant to a Court Order.
Anyway, you simply cannot make this stuff up.
