DAILY POEM "INN OF HAPPINESS" PART 13
Demetrius ended up running home
Shocked and tired was he
Who was the man laying there?
He could not let it be.
It was time to bring some contacts in
Demetrius needed some advice
Grudgingly he picked up the phone
And put it down again twice.
He grabbed a bottle of Scotch
And lay down on his bed
His head was spinning like a top
And wondered if Lily was dead.
Morning came he looked so bad
Unshaven haggard and sick
He looked into the mirror again
And smashed it with a stick.
The paper hit his front door
In the usual noisy way
And on the front page to no surprise
MAN FOUND DEAD TODAY...
Still nothing about his identity
Or how he had been killed
The papers were being sly
When usually they're filled.
Demetrius lifted the phone again
Determined to see this through
He called an old mate named Danny
An old friend and retired screw.
Danny got a shock when Demetrius called
As he had not heard from him in years
The last time both men met
Was when Demetrius went down in tears?
