A Crime In Rhyme: Chapter 5

Updated on July 4, 2012

The final chapter. Have you read the first?

Chapter Five

Another decade comes and goes
And somewhere dark where no one knows
A voice forgotten croaks a phrase
The only phrase he knows. He says:

“It wasn’t me. I’m innocent.
I swear I didn’t kill.
It wasn’t me. Wish I could tell.
I do not have the will”

(That's the end. Really. Author's Homepage)

      That is so messed up, he spent all this time in jail and on her dying bed she couldn't even tell the cops then.

      I always get upset to see an innocent man punished for a crime he didn't commit. It pisses me off when politics interferes with criminal investigations, and the authorities allow a man to be railroaded, because its more important to show they caught someone than it is to catch the right person.

      It's a dreadful fact of life which is both unjust and upsetting.

      In fact, if authorities could swallow their pride and concentrate on doing what their job title says they do instead of trying to put on a public display I think the world would be a better place
