Moriarty


Poesy plus Polemics

underworld overlord
keen as an executioner’s blade
misrespected tweed don
with a calculant mind
pursued by deduction
through valleys of fear
across moors and deep
shadowy switchbacks
of criminal enterprise
fevered professor the
mastermind Mesmer of thieves
seeking final solution to
problems of houndstooth
tenacious for justice in
protagonist deerstalker grasp
these intractable nemeses
carry the chase up steep
ridgelines of glorious alpine
neutrality reaching the
Reichenbach cataract aching
to dance on its precipice
knowing full well that
to fall is to fly and to fly
in that rarefied air would
propel their grave legend
to prominent place in
the canon of mysteries
