Payer for Protection


Payer for Protection

Variation on a theme suggested by Samuel Santos Dumont.

waiting for the answer is not easy
ask anybody who has ever stood
in line for a ticket at the Trailways
bus station in Biloxi, Mississippi

on an August morning slipping
away to the south on a busted flat
what the old guys called Jimmy
and the Imperialists when they

set up they instruments on the back
boards of the Forty-nine Dodge
truck painted industrial black
oh, yeah, wait for that answer

I dare you
