A poem by Brighty

The dead man walks

After a nightly game

Jumped off a building

Such a shame

His best friend cried

But if only he knew

That the dead man's game

Was only a ruse

~

The dead man walks

After a nightly game

Solved cases and took no credit

Such a shame

His best friend grieved

But if only he knew

That the dead man's game

Was only a ruse

~

The dead man walks

After a nightly game

Was punched several times

Such a shame

His best friend threw the blows

But if only he knew

That the dead man's game

Was only a ruse

~

The dead man walks

After a nightly game

More cases than ever

Such a shame

His best friend forgave

But if only he knew

That the dead man's game

Was only a ruse

~

The dead man walks

After a nightly game

A wedding to plan

Such a shame

His best friend made his choice

But if only he knew

That the dead man's game

Was only a ruse

~

The dead mans walks

After a nightly game

Shot near the heart

Such a shame

His best friend cried

But if only he knew

That the dead man's care for him

Could never be a ruse
