A Little Bit Of Cluedo In The Night
when I accused him of… Murder!
“I was in the Kitchen
with Mrs. White –
she’ll give me an alibi, alright!”
But, Mrs. White, speaking all polite:
“No. Colonel Mustard wasn’t there, and nor was I –
I was in the Conservatory,
making a pie.”
This didn’t tally,
and I was up a blind alley
with no paddle.
“But, you did kill Doctor Black
with a Candlestick,
didn’t you Colonel?”
“Seeing as it’s Professor Plum,
who has dead become,
I cannot admit to Killing Black –
of his corpse we have a lack.”
I checked my notes;
Professor Plum, was dead and incredibly dumb – when asked, he said nothing.
Miss Scarlet, a veritable harlot,
going by the name of Charlotte,
confessed to being at the scene of the crime
but not this one.
The Reverent Green
also upon this scene,
eating a tangerine.
But, his alibi, of him writing a sermon
at the time of the murder…
left him in the lurch
when he was asked to swear in church
upon the Good Book –
one look at his guilty expression
was all it took.
So, it was the Reverent Green
who killed Professor Plum
with a Candlestick
in the Library.
PS Mrs.Peacock was ruled out having been holidaying in the Algarve – lucky lady.
