Consulting Detective

The man with the scarf
made his way into our heart.
The soldier with the gun 
was his friend (only one)
The girl in the lab
served him bodies on a slab
The woman with the phone
made him feel not so alone.
His brother (the government)
stood at a cafe he did not frequent
with an umbrella in his hand
he and the soldier planned
not to tell the brother
what had happened to the other.
The man with no division
puts ad men in prison
the man with the crown
made his whole world fall down
scarf told soldier he was fake
and our hearts he did break
but we know he'll come back
even if a pulse he did lack
because the great Sherlock Holmes
(No matter how far he roams)
Loves the man with the gun
he's his friend...
(only one)
