Holmes is Where the Heart Is

The sun rises and a new day dawns

Another murder!” the public mourns

I turn up my collar, pull down my hat

For a wit-filled day, thanks to Mark Gat –

 

ISS.

 

Now I’m by the door, and John at his blog

Mycroft begs me to not take too long

The victim was stabbed just outside a bar

I suspect my nemesis, Jim Moriar-

 

TY.

 

We leave our flat – two-twenty-one-B

When we arrive, I deduce instantly:

That the victim was left-handed you see

It’s simple, even for (Martin) Free-

 

MAN.

 

Anderson, as always, looks bemused

I try to summon my Mind Palace muse

It’s elementary! Plain what killed her

This is just child’s play for the great Sher-

 

LOCK.

 

Another victim! Found by the Thames

I suspect Moriarty again

There’s never any peace on Baker Street

As we leave, we hear: “I’m NOT your housekeep-

 

ER.”

 

Moriarty has laid a cunning trap

He refuses to leave. He whispers, “I’m back.”

He sends me riddles; he sends them to mock

He’s a true psychopath: I’ve been Sherlock-

 

ED.

 

So many fragments, what can they mean?

This time Doyle isn’t decoding the scene,

Must dodge Riley, because journalists talk

It’s clear that she’s not a simple (Deer) stalk-

 

ER.

 

I’ve lost; I’ll take the (Reichenbach) Fall

But first I’ll give Watson one final call

From A Study in Pink, to Baskerville

I have never met a cleverer vill-

 

AIN.

 

Sadly, I had to deceive my friend

He was forced to believe I’d met my end

He was distraught that I could not be saved.

He stands beside my (Scandal In Bel) grave

 

IA.

 

But #Sherlocklives; it was all a lie

High functioning sociopaths never die

I guess I deserved that punch for my tricks

Admit it John, you’re just too Benaddict-

 

ED.

 

ISS. TY. MAN. LOCK. ER. ED. SON. AIN. IA. ED.

 

Now with your knowledge, solve this cipher

You have precisely one minute to decipher

The meaning of the symbols written upon

This sheet of paper. Now THE GAME IS ON
