THE CRIME SCENE By Adepoju Isaiah

Written by Editor

Sirens hanging on each traffic

Blood tipping the toes of passersby

Each on their brow, they begin to mop their sweats

Cars filed like millipedes

A man had just been murdered, 

His head was barely hanging on, 

The doer’s head was bent into the cop-car

He had been a victim! 

Yes! Everybody thought him a criminal

But a victim he had become, 

Not of murder as laid on the street But of social injustice!
