The Posse

  There's a body in the quarry
with a hole in his bible
They don't make 'em like they used to- he said.

There's a hatchet in the stump
Near the old town dump
And the ground's warm enough the bake bread.

And it's so damn hot
It seems like we all forgot
That those fellers wouldn't kill themselves.

So with beer and supplies
We set off with squitnted eyes
Nearly cleared Sam Hills Ammo shelves.

With guns on our backs
we gave lizards heart attacks
As we broke the yellow grass on the way.

When we reached that old house
We gave a rag a gas'line douse
started off by burning a bail of hay.

And as the sun got higher
You couldn't quite perspire
'Cause it just came off as steam.

They fled one by one
To the barrels of our guns
and it seemed like the devils wet dream.

There's a body in the quarry
but he's the lucky one
laid down to rest without shame

and though the sun may be high
And there's blow fly in his eye
It sure beats the hell out of these flames.

meh. nope! you did a great job... I'm having issues writing poems these days. i guess the one complaint is it's too damn long. but aside from that the content, format, etc was very good. i miss you posting!

it's not awful in length - you did ask for critism. it's really a minor niggly complaint. it is a great poem.
