Absolute Sin

He died for a 60" curved Samsung
Ultra High Def Smart TV,


A drive-thru
Crypt along I-95 with a sliding


Diebolt
Vat 21 Drawer and an IPhone 6s,


Already risen to the top
Of a landfill.  Flesh,


Is obsolete.  Forensics
Has no way to solve this crime.


This sin--
Was paid for by The Victim.
