What Patrick Jane has over everyone
on his investigative team is that
he is not just more clever but more fun
in how the finds and foils each dirty rat.
Though not a psychic but a mentalist,
he has no super powers as a sleuth
yet keenly sees what other eyes have missed
while all along they’re staring at the truth.
By inference, deduction and sheer wit,
Jane, thread by thread, undoes the tangled web
of evil and deception, bit by bit,
exposing both the kingpin and the pleb.
Of what does such mentality consist?
To know that brain beats brawn and wit tops fist.
