Murder most morish - NaPoWriMo 20

Watching episodes
of murder mysteries gone by,
such as Cadfael and Agatha Christie's Poirot.

Times of a slower pace
still assaulted
by the brutality of the animal within,
but less obsessive fascination
with showing the gory details
and wanton darkness.

With scenes of the past sensibly lit
without the modern pervading dimness
that shows naught;
the attempted 'mystery'
of what the hell is happening on screen
bludgeoning supposed suspense.

Nostalgia
may be the prime suspect
to much of this,
yet time tells an ongoing tale
of dead horses being flogged
at least the past
lacked the budget to show such horrors.
