Staging...

Updated on March 10, 2015

Killers have no pride,

when they plan on staging a suicide,

the temptations caused

useless aggravation,

and these cases are always charted,

when a killer pushes the rigid

finger of the not so recently departed,

inside the trigger of a gun,

plan set, deed done,

and nothing ever took,

and it’s always crazy,

in the way the end result would look,

it fails a lot,

the suicide victim had to have pulled

the trigger after he was shot,

and fifteen feet away

in another room were blood streams,

as foul play screams,

staging a suicide takes so long,

then you get it all wrong,

it’s an easy case to grab,

that being said,

you don’t even need the crime lab.

      I had never thought about such a thing Frank. I suppose it would be something to plan out well. I do like the new style. Less graphic but still intense can be more than a slap in the face. HP is vigilant about content. I have three Hubs where ads are disabled due to subject matter (prevent child abuse, go figure). But then I see Hubs with the most awful profanity. I flag them but and have sent emails but never received an answer as to actual policy. Anyway, thanks for the write. I feel odd saying I enjoyed it. Regards, Hyph.

      I guess there are always telltale sign of a setup. Nice work Frank.

      Shame that you have had to change your style.

      This one was an interesting story, well done. I liked the slight difference in your style, Frank. After your comment about the ads I guess I better go back and read the ts and cs here. May have to move my story to the blog. Less dramatic. Okay.

      I thank you Joyce, but I have to start changing my formats a great deal of these crime poems I've written have violated hub pages content rules because of language and topic .. so advertising has been disabled on a great deal of them... so now I gotta try to write less dramatic :( but thank you so much again.. Frank
