Leo

We did it.
We broke out.
But I’m an officer of the law.
Though I have no valor now.
No honor from what you last saw.

My brother Gary died
to end a cause with nobility.
I put myself in jail against reason and civility.
My wife was 8 months pregnant,
my purpose felt honorable as fuck,
but every day I walk the earth
feeling like a worthless schmuck.

Try to understand me Leo
why I did what I did.
I too, was tricked, like a game on a kid.
But also drunk with THC craze.
It should me: 6 feet under
rotting in the grave.

So here I say
I’m here to stay
honoring your memory.
We killed many wicked men
and Gary is at last avenged.

Now I’m with my daughter
and Carol, my wife
many times you saved mine
but I ended your life.

Comical climb;
back to back.
Wrench in my plans,
I’m a hairy ass rat.

I’m a liar.
You were honest.
I speak you verses
but you’re reply is
breathless.

-Vincent
