The Law & Order Cycle
A Haiku Epic in Seventeen Parts

by Sean T. P. Collins and Amanda C. Ferguson-Collins

LAW & ORDER PROLOGUE: TUESDAY NIGHTS
At seven. At eight.
Nothing at nine. At ten, though.
And at eleven.
LAW & ORDER I: TWO GROUPS
Detectives, DA's
Criminal justice system
These are their stories
LAW & ORDER II: LENNY BRISCOE
Grizzled veteran
One-liners at the crime scene
"Sounds like my ex-wife"
LAW & ORDER III: RAY CURTIS
Prostitutes like him
He's still a good Catholic boy
But he'll play bad cop
LAW & ORDER IV: LIEUTENANT VAN BUREN
Encouragement from
S. Epatha Merkinson:
"See what you can find"
LAW & ORDER V: ADAM SCHIFF
A gravelly voice:
"This is an election year.
"Call him - make the deal"
LAW & ORDER VI: JACK McCOY
A liberal, but
With righteous indignation.
"It's over." "Is it?"
LAW & ORDER VII: INTERROGATION
"Where were you last night?"
"Oh yeah? I got news for you:
"We talked to your boss."
LAW & ORDER VIII: BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD
"Bad news from the lab."
"His alibi?" "It checks out."
"Time to start over."
LAW & ORDER IX: HARDBALL
"What's it gonna be?
"We'll make it easy for you.
"Life, or the needle?"
LAW & ORDER X: THE ROLE OF PSYCHIATRY IN THE COURTROOM
"Insanity plea?"
"Skoda thinks he's faking it.
"He knew right from wrong."
LAW & ORDER XI: STONEWALLED
"I can't tell you that:
"It's privileged information.
"Doctor and patient."
LAW & ORDER XII: ABBY RESPONDS
"Don't want to tell me?
"I'll just get a subpoena.
"See you both in court."
LAW & ORDER XIII: THE ART OF THE DEAL
"What's your offer, Jack?"
"Man 1, and he does the max."
"I think we're done here."
LAW & ORDER XIV: CROSS-EXAMINATION
"Because YOU killed her!"
"Objection!" "Sustained." "Withdrawn.
"I've got nothing else."
LAW & ORDER XV: CONCLUSION
"The verdict came in.
"Murder one. We got him, Jack."
"Tell that to his son."
LAW & ORDER EPILOGUE: DARK SIDES
Briscoe was a drunk
McCoy slept with ADAs
"Motion to suppress"
