poem #10

well my baby left me
and i never even knew her name
she took my dog and my money
ain't that a dog gone shame

i went to the pet store to buy my fish some food
the clerk behind the counter was frightfully rude
i saw right away he was not one of the elect
he treated me and my fish with no respect

i shot that rascal just to see him beg and crawl
out on the street i thought i heard my baby call
i heard the sirens wailing in the wind
and i threw my pistol down for i had sinned

my baby left me
and she never even knew my name
police pulled up beside me
the movie ended just the same
