Filing A False Report

Updated on December 7, 2012



The nerves ate at her and she couldn’t just sit,

it became darker as the proverbial shit

hit the fan,

she had stated that her daughter

was abducted by three men in a mystery van,

tempers were short,

when she was charged with filing a false report,

a paltry misdemeanor,

but she had to prepare for court,

maybe she just wanted people to remember her name,

enjoy her fifteen minutes of fame,

as her lies continued spinning,

her daughter was still missing,

and the police had no real interest in winning,

they just wanted to find the child,

by tacit agreement,

there would be a trial,

and everyone would say,

it was just for public display,

the truth with so cloudy, it blinds,

and it was the lie that binds,

as a steady deluge of newspaper headlines,

and TV broadcasts prompted officials

to begin a full review by the state,

for the mother it was false fate,

and instead of fame, she got hate,

as her daughter was out there,

buried in some deep grass,

and everything her mother tried to avoid

came to pass.
