some endlessly look for the locked away,
thinking "that person's never gonna pay"
as though they skipped town,
after firing all those rounds.
they see a body taped off in yellow
and remember a good fellow,
they hope on tips and pray they're fits.
they never gave up on the fought;
but the person their looking for has already
been caught.
thinking bullets are still running free...
it's actually self preservation that's key.
