They found his killer with a sneer.
When asked why he shot on Smiley Road
The killer frowned and said: because.
The next day he was electrocuted
His legacy became one word: because.
And that one word became a metaphor,
That metaphor dark irony.
A man committed suicide
Months later there on Smiley Road.
Before he blew brains out,
His last word was predictable: because.
