A Pimp Chronicle


There were drugs

all over the floor,

his brain fried,

blood splattered on the door,

he sat in a wooden chair, tied,

there was a fifty dollar bill

nailed to the wall,

the police briefly stood still,

as they witnessed the biggest

pimp in town, fall,

he was dark complected,

and very tall,

deep set brown eyes,

beneath a high,

sloping forehead,

body covered in flies,

fulfilling their thirst,

he was dead,

but tortured first,

he walked around town,

like he had it made,

chin up, cane on the ground,

he sold drugs,

but he was a pimp by trade,

he was living lies,

his eyelids, were stapled up,

so he wouldn’t blink his eyes,

to the drug community

his death was a distraction,

but to the regular community,

it was total satisfaction.

A really well written poetic crime scene presented in a way that encourages the reader to 'see' the events that led to the consequences. Voted up

Hmm, makes one wonder just who was responsible for the pimp's open-eyed last ride. What goes around comes around. Excellent reporting Frank, in your inimitable poetic style.
