“Homicide Unit”

I have no idea what this is supposed to be, but–since I wrote it–I have decided to post it;) [An oddity in “English” terza rima–by Paul Burgess]

“He passed away before the crimes occurred.”
“To be deceased is not an alibi.”
“You know, your theory is beyond absurd.”

“You think a man above created life.
Why can’t it be destroyed by one below?
What else explains the prints, the bloody knife…”

“Enough! When has a corpse been known to kill?
Allow the dead to rest in peace.
To murder’s never been a corpse’s skill.”

    Thank you! I find it hard to write stuff that’s not absurd:) [If a crazy publisher ever offers me a book deal, I think I will ask that the book be named *Beyond Absurd*. By the way, your comment inspired me to write the oddest poem I have ever written. I will post it soon.
