Ex Chief Murl gets a referral

June 11, 2008

Down at the station, the ex Chief Murl

Gnarled and craggy as a redwood burl

Hair slicked back like the Duke of Earl

The handles on his service revolver are pearl

Officer Liles an AR-15 he will unfurl

He’ll blast anything that moves ,even a squirrel

Before he puts it away he’ll give it a twirl

Up from the scene the gunsmoke will curl.

From both sides now, the epithets hurl

Around the police station the rumors swirl

At the press conference , Ex-Chief gets a bit churl

In his mouth a toothpick he does rapidly twirl.

McGruff the Crime Dog gets his referral

He’s a relic from the days of Milton Berle.
