The trash collector men left a message written on

Drum is too heavy to be picked up, so it was left behind

The old man decided to take a look inside of that drum

This man bought this house nine years ago and the drum was there

And the owner before him saw that drum in the house as well

Authorities came, and they saw a body, it was a woman body, mummified

This drum was unopened for thirty four years and in the same house

Based in the serial number drum dated to 1966, since then, body was inside

Forensic science, oh what an art, and the culprit was found 34 years after

And the woman's body had another tiny little body inside her

But her assassin once was found, such a coward he was, an old man he was now

Blew up his own head with a shot gun he bought for this occasion

The day police came knocking at his door for a crime he committed while young.
