via Daily Prompt: Haul


They surrounded the house
They knocked down the door
What was it they wanted?
What were they looking for?

There was cocaine and pills
Worth two million in all
I heard them respond
“Wow, what a haul”!

They were under surveillance
And under suspicion
There were two undercover
They found guns….ammunition.

Wearing bullet proof vests
Helmets and boots
They were surprised when they found
When they found… all the loot.

More than expected
More than they knew
The suspects were shocked
When they came busting thru.

Handcuffs and subpoenas
All done by the book
They had been caught
Caught on the hook.

Six were arrested
Two had been shot
They tried to escape
They had to be stopped.
