The Crime Scene Host

Updated on February 8, 2015

The lead detective,

also known as

the crime scene host,

and that title

is what he hated most,

at every crime scene.

he could feel the victim’s ghost,

and soft prayers he would hear,

he’s left there,

to weather the storm,

he’d rather sit behind a desk,

for everything there was a form,

so he wouldn’t be bored,

merely wounded, dying or dead,

form number 52/244

stuck in his head,

the murder scene host,

is always taken the center stages,

but he’d rather be converting

the contents of four notepad pages

into a single page 24 hour

crime report,

in short,

he didn’t want to be

the crime scene host,

it wasn’t an appointed post,

and if he left he’d fear,

no one in the unit would volunteer.

      After years of working behind a desk, being a lead detective at a murder scene sounds like a challenge LOL.....the reality is, I would take one look, throw up and head straight back to my desk...good job Frank

      If only Smashwords would move faster. I keep looking for it to be changed because at first I sent a horizontal picture for the front cover but they needed a vertical one so off it went to them to no avail. It's the steam engine train story and The Undercover Detective. Will let you know.

      A song contribution, as I now cannot get outta my head... would be"Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo....

      The word 'host' feels as eerie as 'anniversary of one's death'...a criminal butchering of the English language... Voted UP and FAB!

      Frank, another remarkable piece of work. There are always some jobs that has to be done, but no one wants to do. I recently watched a film about an army officer whos job was to inform families about the death of their loved one. As a job, this must be So soul destroying.

      Hi Frank,

      "it wasn’t an appointed post,

      and if he left he’d fear,

      no one in the unit would volunteer."

      It is the job and justice for the victim that is important to him and not the title.

      Voted up and awesome

      Have a good week. :)

      Whoever decided they should be known as 'Hosts' needs looking at. Hosts are normally related to pleasant functions.

      Another interesting piece Frank.

      The crime scene host would fill the page, partly to contain his rage, and though he took center stage, the idea was to put the murderer in a cage.
