There were many bodies swimming in the suspect pool,

pretty much everyone wanted him dead,

[the audience nods so loudly it causes an earthquake]

but,

swam at the shallow end,

unwilling to do what they wanted to do.

Three,

were in the deep end,

.

“One of us in this very room is in fact the murderer.”

with secondhand smoke?

causing a sudden whirlwind,

which sent him flying,

down the hallway stairs,

head over heels,

and heels over head,

until head cracked?

Did Miss Scarlet,

kill him with her brain,

bludgeoning him with facts,

in the library?
