ET Poet Eye

Post by Eternum 1 » Thu Jun 30, 2005 5:08 pm

A quiet day
in the low rent district
The kind of place where
Roach motel is a place uptown

Then 'She' walked in
just as I was looking
for a reason
to live

She had class written all over
I'm talking top shelf
like single malt
mellowed past puberty

With the kind of body
that Henry Ford
called Model A
with all the options

I knew she was
trouble with 2 ts and a A
as she removed the
Glock from her purse

"So Mr T"
she said with a smile
as bright as a new cue ball
'May I call you E?"

'Have a seat, sugar'
I replied,
while hastily removing socks
still drying from the sink.

She wiggled into the chair
the way a bee wiggles into a flower
As she must have
putting on that Versace dress

I listened to her story
offered her a tissue
as her eyes moistened
like amazon rain on twin sapphires

She must have seen it in my face
as she put back the glock
I was hooked like a greyhound
at the sight of rabbit on a rail

I took the case
and 2 months rent money
Smiling like Joe Camel
as she wrote a check

I watched her leave
swaying like a trailer
on a windy over-pass
on the I 90

I carefully put Roscoe
back in the drawer
It never pays
to push your luck

to be continued
:cool:
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Took a slug of Gatorade,
marked the rent bill paid.
Every hours been dragging
10 days on the wagon.

Checked a morning paper
about the latest caper,
A Colombian cartel
dropped some Joe down a well

That was pretty droll,
using a water hole
Colombians you know,
Make a strong cup of Joe

Looked out the window
at the five and dime,
A big bellied flatfoot
read Miranda to a mime

"You've a right to remain silent"
I heard him tell the Mime,
He took him to the precinct
to log some overtime


tbc :cool:
.


-----------------------------------------------------------

My client's name
was Lady Penelope Crapper
heiress to fortune and fame
since her husbands a cadaver

She's a prime suspect
after two wet slugs
were found in Crapper's chest
after one of Penelopes hugs

You could see she was innocent
and that a derringer was never meant
to be encased between double D jugs
TBC :cool:

'kin great, Eternum.

I didn't get a lot of the humour, what with me being non-American and all that, but I thought some of your similes were brilliant, eg

'As her eyes moistened, like Amazon rain on twin sapphires.'

'She wiggled into the chair, the way a bee wiggles into a flower.'

Very visual.
