Today in 1881 One of the States’ most infamous sons Made a violent escape from jail His crimes were quite beyond the pale Two deputies he sent to heaven His total death toll: 27 He was a murderer and a thief Whose short career caused dreadful grief He died around age 21 Brought down by a lawman’s gun Sheriff Pat Garrett killed Billy the Kid Not everyone was glad he did
If her guy thought he had sunshine on what was – by his own admission – a cloudy day; and believes May was indoors (say what?); had a swarm of bees on his tail; reckoned his wailing sounded better than the birds in the trees (at least they were outside); and didn’t even have any money or fortune (or grasp of tautology) and no fame to his name (though that was clearly a lie; a little disingenuous, don’t you think?), then I submit his girl was probably better off without him. I know I wouldn’t be tempted.
How does a pope cope with being Pope? I hope he does not smoke dope or mope around or grope the cardinals or lope about, laughing aloud or lashing out – so undignified for he who aspired to lead billions. I do hope he’s nice to his minions.
Does he ever reach the end of his rope and wonder whether to sever the tether? But he can’t resign; he can only die and that’s not a good sign for enjoying the rest of his life. He can’t even marry a wife.
He might shout, Nope! I’m done as pope! I slithered down the slippery slope and believed the hype and now I find I’m not the pope type. I have no time to tarry. Do not be shocked when I elope with a defrocked nun. I’m just so very done.
