besotted (said detective piggott)

detective piggott
said

they make him out
some sort
of demi-god

a crafty eye
and
a curling sneer

he wears the best
of suits
with
a velvet collar
and
black bowler hat

he’s little more
than
a snazzy little
villain . . .

and a murderer

.

.

.

they idolize

said detective piggott

and the girls –

poor
underworld besotted
creatures –

all
seem ready
to do more

    • It keeps unfolding, Derring.

      Detective Piggott is described as being the Sherlock Holmes of his time and being single handedly responsible for introducing forensic investigation to the country. Camera, blood spatter, fingerprints etc.

      He was also closely involved with my two characters – Ida and keslie.

      Pretty amazing, really.
