the neutral colors of winter ice and…
frost on the empty playground equipment. Then I came across this--
--the remains of a dead snowman.
And, nearby, another corpse! The only forensic knowledge I have is from all those crime scene television shows so I could only guess that the deceased succumbed to solar exposure.
Not far away I discovered a sight of horrific carnage.
Such bloodshed and slaughter I have never seen!
The head was torn off and the body was impaled with a sharp stick.
I considered notifying the authorities. But I have also learned from the television that reporting a crime leads to being dragged down to the police station where the witness is shut up in a little gray room. Then he is viciously questioned until at last he confesses to a felony without even an attorney present.
So I went on my way. I saw nothing. In fact, I was never there.
