Saint Detective Robert Goren



Saint Detective Robert Goren

Came to me in my dreams last night

As I squeezed through a hole in the back yard fence

With my rag doll and little light


Saint Detective Robert Goren

Said he knows how men wear masks

And if I wanted to tell him a secret

All I had to do was ask


His partner Alex Eames

Had hidden my stuff upstairs

It was done to prevent me from leaving

And because they always work in pairs


Star light, star bright

The devil stays out of sight


Wish I may, wish I might

Elude that terrifying appetite


Saint Detective Robert Goren

Had his ways and his little tricks

Though the closer he got, the more I screamed

And beat him with my fists


Saint Detective Robert Goren

Made me tell him all the rest

He said I never had been guilty

And I wept against his chest.

I kind of wanted Goren to mourn Nicole in a significant way when she died. I wasn't particularly enamored of the whole "Bobby Gets Institutionalized" storyline.

Wait- no one asked me.

I wonder what Goren would do with someone crying on his chest.

Very mysterious. Star light, star bright...what is the appetite? Inquiring minds want to know the secret but I know you are going to leave me to my own devices. Did you really dream this one?

Vicarious, I liked the dapper handsome Bobby lots better than the scruffy bloated Bobby we get now. I like Eames better now, though, they gave her more to do.

You're right, Pouty, I'm not going to 'splain. But yes, I dreamt it last night.

I had to read this one a couple of times.

I like it, but I'm still working it around in my head.

Fire Garden, why do they alway work in pairs?? Do they go to the loo in pairs too?

I'm sorry you had to go through terrifying experience.

This needs to be a song ... and not as a singy-songy lullaby either.
Excellent!
