The Lesson of Farshad Mohammadi

by Jack Locke

We shoot the homeless to give them a home
A place they can rest eternal in peace
Before a kill the lips of wolves will foam.

Each new sad story is written by a gnome
A scribe whose job is to fabricate a piece
We shoot the homeless to give them a home.

In Montreal murder ticks like metronome
A bullet, a villain, a cop with caprice
Before a kill the lips of wolves will foam.

Recent incidents alone could fill a tome
I hasten to blame the poor-trained police
We shoot the homeless to give them a home.

The repeating quality resembles palindrome
Increase, decrease, but metro-mortem will not cease
Before a kill the lips of wolves will foam.

Three shots got Farshad bim-bam-bome
He will not get a chance to renew his lease
We shoot the homeless to give them a home
Before a kill the lips of wolves will foam.
