Most Moments Are Red Herrings

Common days resemble cozies,
In that things kick off with a corpse
In some less-than-terrible spot,

And then the mystery proceeds
Until it’s wrapped up cleverly
In some stuffy situation--

Too many people in one room--
With a surprise accusation
And arrest. Then it starts again,

Another day, another corpse,
The next entry in the series,
With the same central character,

Detective confabulator,
Brought in to crack another case.
