Moronic Murderers

I just love to watch Dateline
And Forty-Eight Hours Mystery…
I often scream at my television
‘How stupid can someone be?’

Their internet searches are careless
Looking up such truly awful things
‘The best way to strangle someone’ 
‘murder 4 hire’; braggin’ bout their flings!

Cell phone pings surely don’t lie
Rental car records-easy to trace
Tire impressions and fingerprints
Idiots leave DNA all over the place!

Then there are the ones who crack
Confessing at the station
They should have shut their trap
Plead the fifth, interrogation cessation 

I’ve strategized about what I'd do...
Lie in wait behind a bush?
Use Poison? Peaceful smothering? 
Or maybe a little cliffside push?

Most killers are foolish, careless
As they bid their freedom ‘adieu’
I am far more calculating, clever 
Smart enough to not tell you!

    12 percent of murders are committed by women. Poison or arson is the method usually chosen. * Great Write Natalie

    Some killers are not killers at all. Planted evidence is more popular than ever. Just a twist to add to your thought provoking poem!

    Congratulations on your win in my contest! I like how you talked about the shows and how stupid people can be about committing murder - no one else did this or had the thought NOT to tell me - great idea and ending!

    Natalie, yours is one of the cleverest I am reading, and I agree with you about those shows, thinking how stupid can they BE. Congrats on your well deserved win.

    Natalie, ironically some of my favorite shows like "Criminal Minds" may actually offer tips to murderers on how not to be caught. Even though I enjoy these shows, I worry about the consequences. This is a very thought-provoking and clever entrie for Susan's contst. Surely a winner! Love, Carolyn
