This is part III of a poem that I originally posted last September with more recent installments being posted in the last few days. Parts IV & V will follow within the next few days.

 

 
Quoting the Wanderin Man, “I’m pickin up where I left off as I was tellin about a situation I got myself into a few years back. Like I said, I was hangin out in a little town along the border betwixt Texas an Mexico.”
 
WANDERIN MAN
RUNNIN FROM THE LAW
Continued - Part III
 
Got the pedal to the metal,
grindin her through the gears,
runnin from the law,
and tryin to outrun the tears.
 
She’s a damn fine lookin gal
never even caught her name,
whatever she was into
it’s a pretty damn scary game.
 
Prob’ly best if I just dropped it,
dump’er an move along,
but I ain’t guilty of nothin,
I wasn’t doin nothin wrong.
 
B’sides, that goes agin my grain,
don’t like seein women used.
I kin turn the other way,
long as they ain’t abused.
 
Bout then her phone starts in a ringin,
caller’s name is Steve,
so I decided that I’d answer
he might be one who’ll grieve.
 
I put the phone on speaker
so I could talk an yet still drive
I pushed the answer button
an a mans voice asked, “You still alive?”
 
I asked, “Who are you a callin?”
He responded, “Mary Ann,
she’s my little sister
she’s a havin trouble with a man.”
 
I said, “The news ain’t good,
though I don’t fully understand,
yer little sister’s dead
an I’m still tryin ta make a plan.”
 
I told him what I knowed,
he thanked me fer my concern,
said, “The assholes who done this
have got a lesson ta learn.”
 
Said, “I ain’t never been a teacher,
but I’ve taken more’n one ta school,
if’n you could use a little help,
I got a good look at the fools.”
 
He said, “That’s mighty friendly
I might could use yer help.”
Said he had some biker friends,
they’d be a lookin ta take a scalp.
 
We made plans ta meet,
so he could take her car,
told him where I’d leave it,
near a friendly neighborhood bar.
 
Said he knew a friendly cop
he’d take care a things.
He an his sister were alone
but he knew she’d gain her wings.
 
So, I covered her with a blanket
Left her where I said she’d be
then I sat at the bar
ta see what I could see.
 
He showed up on a bike
with a couple of his friends.
Seein his sister in his eyes,
I offered ta help’em make amends.
 
His cop took charge of the body
I didn’t ask a lot a questions.
He, his biker friends an I
began plannin ta teach some lesson’s.
 
To be continued….
