Of Probable Cause

Updated on December 22, 2013

Suspects are from Venus,

and the police are from Mars,

nevertheless, they arrived in two cars,

an old man was the suspect,

and they just wanted to ground and pound,

it was going to be an exaggerated escort

for that old smoke-hound,

their reasons for suspecting the old man fell short,

either way, someone will end up in court,

the police hurried in without even a pause,

knowing they had no legal requirements

of probable cause,

as they streamed in like a morning current,

and there was no search and seizure warrant

signed by a judge,

they just held a grudge,

and that, the old man knew,

but the Mars attack had just about the right

number to perform a plain-view,

the more eyes, the better,

the old man didn’t know what to do,

his eyes red,

as he moaned and shook his head,

the law failed to translate,

as the old man tried to formulate

an argument from a series of seemingly

unrelated syllables,

but the lead officer made it clear,

as he dangled the fear,

like a carrot at the end of a stick,

and that was part of the trick,

the anger grew,

so the old man stuttered,

as the other detectives slid past the two,

and began moving slowly through

a fetid, three room apartment, cluttered,

searching without a legal clause,

and there was no probable cause.

      Lol. So whose going down? You covered it from the top to the bottom like the white on rice. But the fact that the suspects are from Venus?

      You again took it back to Adam and Eve.

      I know who will win that battle in court, even if they had probable cause.

      You again did your mind justice .

      Great job of capturing the ignorance of the law. Yes, that is a two-fold statement.

      I always thought those who came from Mars are all men and those who came from Venus are all women. LOL

      Frank, there is no limit of your imaginations. Well done my fellow hubber.
