Unforgettable killing:

Former errant political couple
Attacked their perceived critic’s family
Secured living in pervasive bubble
But fear of crimes past wont fade easily

Not content with just their initial sin
Using their servile support to harass
And ultimately kill the critic’s kin
Relying on their elite carte blanche pass

Enlisting an amoral talk show host
To keep tabs on target’s interactions
Minority underlings used to post
Constant espionage revelations

With Poes “The Tell-Tale Heart” analogy
The course of justice will be relentless
As new administration strategy
Aims to expose past criminal excess

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Good poem to invite attention to social injustice.

appreciate your kind comments

have you ever been published in a political magazine or newspaper? your stuff, so specific (to world events), yet so applicable to the grand (macro) picture, would be a great addition. i love the allusion to poe's "tell tale heart".

Thanks Greg for your affirmation. I have not published yet and although my ego would welcome an anthology of my poetry, my grey cells question how many persons would read let alone buy my poetic offering.

I haven't been published yet, and I don't know anything about it. Just what your poem made me think. :)

I will give due consideration to your suggestion. Thanks.
