Seeing

I glanced upon a falling star
And saw the approaching light.
The fire, the force, your fury
Was masterfully hid within.

I saw the angst and anguish
You tried so hard to mask.
Your pride. Your purpose.
Your golden light turned pain.

I climbed atop the highest mountain
With sword thrust to to the heavens
And raged against the gods of old
Who stole the smile from your eyes.

      1. Early one mornin’ while makin’ the rounds
        I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down
        I went right home and I went to bed
        I stuck that lovin’ .44 beneath my head
        …………………

        When I was arrested I was dressed in black
        They put me on a train and they took me back
        Had no friend for to go my bail
        They slapped my dried up carcass in that county jail

        ……..

        Into the courtroom my trial began
        Where I was handled by twelve honest men
        Just before the jury started out
        I saw the little judge commence to look about

        In about five minutes in walked the man
        Holding the verdict in his right hand
        The verdict read murder in the first degree
        I hollered Lawdy Lawdy, have a mercy on me

        The judge he smiled as he picked up his pen
        99 years in the Folsom pen
        99 years underneath that ground
        I can’t forget the day I shot that bad bitch down
