The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle #523 ~ No Weapon Found ~ #Poetry

No Weapon Found


The air, thick with the smell of iron
A blood-soaked drawing
Found under the body of a young man
Depicting a church. The space around, 
seemingly undisturbed, no weapon found
Time of death estimated at 12 pm
News spread like wildfire
Murder on one of our favourite beaches
Time is a fault in finding the perpetrator
Every minute searching for clues becomes tight
A net slowing the officers
The small rowboat might hold a clue
They are warned that speedy actions
will lead the investigation astray
Detective James yelled across the office
Someone bring that priest in for questioning!
