#003 The Mack Knife...

When a mystery writer named Mack
Was found with a blade in his back,
The cops found a scrawl
In his blood on the wall:
So concludes the career of a hack...

A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

She'd stolen away mafia cash
A decision he thought that was rash
She'd be hunted he knew
There was only one thing he could do
And he ended Kate's life with a knife's deadly flash.

He left her sat there in her seat
He'd arranged for someone to meet
He had to go have a drink
Sit down quite for a think
And come up with a way to escape all the heat

The police found Mack stone cold dead
And Igor with a bullet in the head
But with Kate sat cold in her seat
They nearly admitted defeat
Till they found the money hiddened away in a shed.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ee cummings

The mafia chief was mad as a hatter
Their coffers should be quite a bit fatter
With the plan gone awry
Someone would die
Another dead body couldn't possibly matter.

MArk knew he had to act fast
Or his life would not for long last
He started packing his bags
Avoid his friends and his lags
And made ready to say good bye to his past

Should he hop a plane, boat or train?
Which best to avoid being slain?
He pulled his hat low
He was ready to go
With a feeling of dread he could easily explain.

Billy spotted him from a mile out
I took your money he seemed to shout
Billy was mean
Many killings he'd seen
And he'd grown in to one great big lout

But Mark was not quite the dope
That Billy had obviously hoped
In the blink of an eye
Mark took off on the fly
With a rifle and an accurate scope

Every day, do one thing that scares you.

Mark carefully sighted for Billy
He wouldn't just shoot willy-nilly
Slowly he squeezed
The trigger, and sneezed!
Doggone! He just shot Bill's wife Millie!

So revenge formed a knot in Bills heart
Cold and ugly from the start
It grew and grew
Even though it was new
Bill would now forever hunt down Mark.

And Millie’s dog, Brutus, had witnessed the scene
He snarled with a demeanor quite obscene
Billy unleashed him
His thoughts grim
Brutus did favor a lean man cuisine
