RANSOM

 

(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
