What a cause for inquiry this shooting’s become,
Quite the mystery wrapped up in the conundrum,
But try to ask questions of the perpetrator of the crime
And he is unable to answer any inquiries at this time.
Do good people hold fast to the mistaken belief
That whispered confession gives blessed relief?
Oh, good grief.
The Mayor wishes this Officer would shed some light,
But he’s staying silent, and what’s wrong with that Right?
Say, why WERE body cameras off when the action occurred?
Perhaps he foresaw reason to be neither seen nor heard?
His lawyer says ‘keep your reasonings brutally short,
Or your mouth shut till they drag out your report.’
In open Court.
