(David Craig)


Flat bed driver

two rail street car

turncoat riders with a gun


Missing policeman

three odd children

praying hard the money comes


Tuned-in sniper

says he’ll drop him with just one

what’s the hurry

just two hours and it’s done ... ransom


Gunman whistles,

sweats a little

not much time and too many lawmen


Chances zero

the negative hero

thinks he’s nothing left to lose


Ransom ... streetcar ... gunman ... 

ransom ... ransom ... ransom
