365 Poems in 365 Days: Mystery Protegee

To my brilliant protégée, Miss Lacey Lee
I see your career progresses satisfactorily
However you investigate far too happily
Detectives today need to be grim and broody
Or else annoy everyone by acting quirkily
Not be a pleasant, well adjusted young lady
Do you not have a dark secret in your history?
I enclose a very intriguing obituary
Of a fellow who died most peculiarly
Which I hope will tickle your thinking fancy
Your sincerely Michael Villefort, PhD

Number 210 reveals Lacey Lee, Detective Extraordinaire, being taken to task by her mentor. Tut tut Lacey Lee. It's not enough to solve crimes, you need a tortured soul as well!
