The Bible Was A Message In Time
Christ, another Bible,
the detective picked up
that opened book,
and without taking a look,
he tossed it onto a chair,
with a dozen others,
and it wasn’t that he didn’t care,
the Bibles were just found there,
book marked at the same page,
it was almost like an act on stage,
the bookmark held its place,
even as pages fluttered
in the cool breeze of an air conditioner,
amongst the clutter,
A Bible was found after every murder,
right next to the body, without fail,
almost like a paper trail,
shedding light on a dark city,
and remembering a line,
" you have slaughtered them without pity,"
It was a true crime,
and the Bible was a message in time.
