murder solved

This is the story
of Old McCartney
a partner of McCartney
& McCartney  the firm.
He was the senior attorney
and a famous attorney
of  McCartney & McCartney the firm.

As he reached the gates
of his royal estate
he saw the gate-keeper
skimper away.
Now that was unusual
so the furious septuagenarian
brought himself to open the gate.

But he was unaware,
this was a plot and a snare,
where he was the unsuspectng bait.
A bullet was shot
which went through  his heart
and he slumped on the ground
clear dead.

***  ****  ****

the Detective then came
with  reporters in pursuit
the news like wild fire
was spread.

****     ***** ****

The suspects were summoned,
five females ,and a son.
Not  a criminal so  hardened
the son begged for  pardon.
Calling his step mother on the scene
He then spilled around all the beans.

They had hatched a plot with thoughts  of greed
 and the gate keeper ,to shoot the master agreed
It was a plotting in haste----no one was chaste
So all the three--- in the police dragnet
were now cooling their heels.

*****      *****     *****

The inspector
and sleuth
were friends in their youth
they shared the applause and accolade.
The media anounced
they were better than hounds
and no crimminal would
they let escape .
