The Night Abe Danced With A Murderer

Work Text:

---

 

Insanity crept,

And reality wept,

The night the Detective danced with a Murderer.

 

For years, he’d been

Hunting,

Hunting,

Hunting -

Tracking the Murderer down.

 

He had been a Detective.

Insanity crept,

And reality wept,

The night he danced with a Murderer.

 

He took a job,

His judgement was wrong,

He got himself shot,

By the Murderer.

 

Insanity crept,

And reality wept,

The night he danced with a Murderer.

He had been a Detective.

 

He had been

So certain -

The Butler, clean.

The Chef, clean.

The Mayor, the Guest, clean.

The Colonel?

All clean.

He killed people.

I don’t understand anymore.

So many people!

I can’t... Remember...

HE IS THE BAD GUY.

He knows what’s happening.

HE IS THE BAD GUY.

He knows what’s happening.

 

Insanity crept.

I got myself shot.

Reality wept.

What year is it?

He couldn’t wake up.

I was shot, should be dead.

He couldn’t wake up.

I should be dead!

He couldn’t wake up,

Why can’t I remember?

He couldn’t wake up-

Let me wake up-

Let me wake up!

LET ME WAKE UP!

LET ME WAKE UP!
