I've been doing poems with fives

Mickey in Five Stanzas

Pinko, commy, sum-bitches
story line from the fifties
won’t work today

Velma, sweater girl extraordinaire
with pointy, circle stitched bra
is a passé image

Cops and the Assistant D.A.
beating on old Mike Hammer
cliché, cliché; not today's way

Fast gun, lotsa fun
especially with no consequence
but that won’t fly in the current genre

Writing mysteries
has become demanding,
Betcha, Mickey’s glad he’s dead
