Apologies my dear friend, for this was unforeseen
But you’re conscience slowed you down. Even as a teen
You always did the right thing, whereas I usually strayed
And today is no different as a valuable price you paid.
Your wing tips walked the thin blue line of deceit
And you came awfully close to sitting in my seat.
The day at the cafe was the final piece to the puzzle
You saw the photo in my wallet, and I know you enjoyed a cuddle
With her every now and then, so you would have seen this on the shelf
When the body was found it was gone, which set the ball rolling inside yourself.
You connected all the dots, except for the why
Why did such a beautiful woman have to die?
The answer is simple, she possessed a fortune I desired
And as her heart belonged to you its no surprise what transpired.
I wasn’t born with a silver spoon as you know very well
So now I’ve snuck into Heaven after escaping Hell.
As a close friend I felt your pain when I took her from this world
You cried her name every night wishing to be reunited. Curled
Up on your mattress battling through those lonely nights and days
Then clues from the case came together which got you to the next phase
You shared your theories with the culprit across the table
There’s a valuable lesson at the end of this fable
Your eyes told a tale of suspicion and doubt
But all I saw was a man on a parallel route
To the one that I was on, but that was the ruse
You suspected me but needed evidence to accuse.
Every corner I turned there you were in need of my
Guidance, racking your brains over coffee and pie.
Mi casa es su casa, treat these floors like yours
You wasted little time rummaging through my drawers
Confronting me was your ultimate sin,
Now you’ll forever lie in what your resting in.
