Deceptive Detective

His manner polite, unassuming
He rambled, and slighted his grooming
He appeared absentminded,
so suspects were blinded
to murder indictments a-looming

Actor Peter Falk, beloved as television's detective Columbo, has died.

The acting world is quite a gumbo
Some stars are petite and some jumbo
This actor took charge
on screens small and large,
known best for the rumpled Columbo

While in truth he would shrewdly dissemble,
a screw-up, no clue he'd resemble
If his suspects but knew
just who's fooling who,
too soon in their boots they would tremble
