SHUNNING CLASSICAL CASEBOOK INVESTIGATION TECHNIQUE
February 19, 2017
Evidently a Lie / Obviously obtusely Truth;
It’s meant to be a pair of documents,
Y’see, But I signed both.
Caught, I could share the clench
He put on that pair of documents.
Bright lights washed this whiteish room.
The solemness thing a candle brings,
Though I searched, all the shadows had no shade in this room.
We digressed some away from
the heart of the matter
When he stressed my stories were
fog & mirror
I’m sure I concurred that if
Scenes and factors shift
From tellings to retellings,
It seems the fact is seeming shifty.
My “But plainly, a planned lie,
A tall Alibi, that had ironclad unchanging,
‘Mimicry!’ is one word-for-word bed story,
Read to children.
Isn’t that one good bet
That wins & sets the liar free?”
I think he let it sink in, and then set.
“And you expect me to reject
Classic casebook investigation technique
& instead of doubting inconsistency,
Instead ..One consistent story
Is a tell tale “good bet”
for Guilty? And yet,
changing ones tune again & again is uniquely
Honest? it’s best to revise to clarify..
As one more clearly
recalls new old details?
Just as pieces of night dreams
