Boston suspect inspires free-verse poetry

Unlike Palmer, Treacher is comfortable with recognizable rhyme schemes, composing a dimeter quatrain for Palmer:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Defending this killer
Speaks poorly of you

Another couplet addresses Tsarnaev, in less sympathetic terms than Palmer’s:

You punctured your gullet
Eat another bullet

On Twitter, Palmer dismissed her critics as “trolls” and “haters.”

Tsarnaev, 19, is accused of plotting with his 26-year-old brother Tamerlan to set off two pressure cooker bombs filled with ball bearings at the finish line of the annual race. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed early Friday during a standoff with police. Dzhokhar was captured later that day and will be tried in criminal court. The attacks killed three people and injured more than 170.
