Deterrent Deterrent

Paul suggests aloud
to no one in particular
society charge suicides
with murder
for killing themselves
and place them on trial
in absentia.

With such a definition
he counts six murderers
he associated with
over the past decade
and wonders
if he should be arrested
as an accessory.
