Dark, damp, spooky night

Scared to wonder far out of sight

Bone chilling wind blowing wild

In the distance I see a misty fire cloud.


Gathering my nerve, off I go to investigate

Slowly I walk thru the dark, scared, closing fence gate

Sweating becoming soaking wet

Stopping only to look, glaze, and wiping my brow.


Closer my steps lead me as my heart is pounding

Crawling now inch-by-inch to spy

Suddenly voices I hear beneath the dark skies

Aliens from outer space sent to capture me.


Peeking thru the blue grass with my eyes

Aliens I do not see

Just some good ole southern boys

Making corn whiskey


John T. Banasiewicz Jr.

This is a great poem that takes us on a thrilling adventure....made me think of a Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer as adults!

Well done my friend - thanks for the fun!

Tommy, this had me humming in my mind the song “A Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams Jr. while I was reading this. Excellent work and visuals, my friend. I enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing it. Take care and be well.

There is nothing quite like the sound of a Mason jar being screwed opened to reveal the white liquid of well-made corn likker, I say, likker, my friend. LOL

Southern boys making corn whiskey? You don't really think they do that here?
Only if they get the chance! These days they are more likely to just drink corn whiskey than make it...but...they have been known to.
Glad to know you are in much better company with them good 'ol Southern Boys than with the aliens Tommy! If your lucky..there'll be a few Southern girls show up! *grin*
Great write!
