GUN CRAZY (Part Twenty-One)

...
My sister's in prison
The savior has risen
The cow jumped over the moon
She sent me a letter
Just last Tuesday
Written upon a balloon
It said:
...
JASON, DON'T YOU WORRY
THE ANGELS HAVE COME TO
SOOTHE MY BROW
THEY BRING WATER AND WINE
WE HAVE A HELLUVA TIME
WE DANCE THE CELLBLOCK DOWN TO THE GROUND
-DON'T WORRY- -I LOVE YOU-
P.S. THE ANGELS GIVE YOU YOUR PROPS
...
(angel sez
-naw man, i ain't seen her in weeks
no one gets in there
no one-)

Great verses, i loved the one that says the cow jumped over the moon.

"I sometimes hold it half a sin
To put in words the grief I feel;
For words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the Soul within."

Perfect and fantastic. The little bit of reality in there, your name, touch of genius.

I love the whimsy of this. The message written on the balloon. The angels appearing in the cell block. More please....

No, it is from a kind of unknown jewish writter, just google the first sentence and you will find her.
She is awesome.


Read her poems, she is great.

I am so envious that you can rhyme! Awesome. I like the idea of writing a note on a balloon.
