The EX police officer

Of the law

Is writing furiously

Like a crazy man.

Yellow pads

Are being filled

Page after page,

Minute after minute

Second after second

Witness after witness

Word after crazy word.

Now

What is he writing?

“Thou shall not kill”

100 x times

500 x times

1,000,000 x times,

Or

Is he writing

“It wasn’t 9 minutes

& 29 seconds”.

Or more

or less.

Because he doesn’t quite remember.

Or maybe

He’s trying to come up

With that perfect 1irst line

For all those dates

He’s goint to be

Invited on

In prison.
