This story is true.
Only the names have been changed
For their protection.
Sunday, July 5th.
I'm on robbery with Frank.
Then a call came in.
"Please calm down, ma'am. Where are you?
We'll be right over."
"My name's Joe Friday.
Did you see what happened here?
Please, ma'am, just the facts."
"Hey, bud, where were you
when this robbery went down?"
"I was in Van Nuys."
"Hey, look at this, Joe."
"What's that, Frank? Some fingerprints?
Now we know who lied."
"I did nothing, cop!"
"Your fingerprints don't say so.
Come on, you. Let's go."
On July fifteenth
Trial held in LA court.
The sentence? Ten years.
This series of haikus is one big allusion, referring to the TV show Dragnet, and summarizing the plot of an imaginary episode. Haiku often have a seasonal theme, or aim to capture a particular moment in time.
