Nobody heard the shot...

  
Nobody heard the shot,
Who assassinated who?
You were watching nobody,
Nobody was watching you.
  
Nobody felt time freeze
at the trigger finger's cue.
Nobody came out of a shop,
nobody ducked from view.
  
Nobody called an ambulance
and a camera crew.
If somebody was dying,
nobody knew.
  
Nobody stood in a crowd five deep
to see where the bullet went through,
nobody watched the blood on the road
turn sticky like glue.
  
Nobody was waiting there
to help the boys in blue.
Nobody cried and nobody lied
and nobody told it true.
  
Nobody was brought to trial,
which proves a thing or two:
Nobody can do for money
what money can do for you.
