Murder Mystery was a great title!! I see you wrote an actual tanka. I am confused by what to do since the rules state to do three lines 17 syllables or under. In YOUR contest, do you want only one quatrain or any number of quatrains. Seeing your lovely example, I assume it can be any number of them?

It is easy to say, "Thou shalt not kill" when one is a god, but most victims disagree. . . . .

LOL, when I saw this “murder mystery” was about a bug.
