Ten is the number to begin Early in the garden Gathering herbs, foxglove and more On her face casual grin Nine are the ingredients here Placed in beef stew to simmer It will be tender, succulent For his eye will grow dimmer Eight minutes sear the stew beef Add some herbs like lemon thyme Pour in beef broth to simmer down Let it stew half a day's time Seven is the count to cook some rice A soft bed to nestle Colors a great contrast appeal Beauty, aroma will settle Six add carrots, red and green peppers The slow simmer, leaves crunch Perfect in shape, color and taste He will munch, munch, and munch Five memories of his abuse Threats, terror, and betrayal Guns pointed to head even loaded To public opposite portrayal Four ladles of stew removed Add some oleander To stew on range, and let simmer Stir the pot, leaves meander Three flowers from pretty foxglove Maybe this stew he'll love Hear his truck come down the drive Everything's quiet even dove Two ladles served upon white rice Her's prepared set aside Upon a plate over white rice Stew served that she contrived One ambulance pulls quietly away Rushing to hospital Entirely too late to save the day A crime? Really Committal? I watch TV crime stories..LOL

Ha! You have written a perfect crime story here my friend! Was this on one of the shows you watched, a lady making a poison soup and then giving it to her abusive husband? What an interesting write Sara! I surely loved reading this amazing poem this morning! You have written a fascinating piece, a masterful crime scene! Great Work!!

Russell, What I have learned from the crime TV programs is that women do use poison more than men but men do use that method as well..Several women in the last maybe ten years have used antifreeze, years ago some used arsenic, some nurses or women who worked in hospitals have used meds from the hospital, etc..Mostly people get caught..There are really no perfect crimes even developed some very highly intelligent minds..Thanks for dropping by..
