The Smoking Non-Gun

Thermal image of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in a boat last Friday night.

Spent the week insisting law enforcement is the best;
Told ourselves how brave we were; that we were "Boston Strong."
Story that was told to us - apparently - was wrong.

'though the car he stole was only blocks from where he hid,
Thousands of our finest searched and couldn't find the kid.
Made it less than half a mile once he began to run.
Cops have torn his route apart; they didn't find a gun.

Once the owner of the boat got searchers back on track,
We were told Dzhokhar shot at them; officers shot back.
Bullets flew, explosions lit the sky - but now it seems
All those rounds were fired by police and their SWAT teams.

I can't say I blame the State Police or FBI;
Tamerlan proved that the brothers were prepared to die.
Job description doesn't list "Infallible" for cop...
But, this self-congratulating stuff? It's time to stop.
