“We're the last ones to let you down!”

End
by Ted L Glines


--- sinning ---
it was fun for a day
never thought to pay
always laughing - a happy clown
--- caught ---
thought he could run-n-dodge-n-hide
police got him - gave him a ride
sure to make a grown man frown
--- judged ---
court was short - no mercy sang
gavel came down with a bitter bang
“guilty” is a thorny crown
--- hung ---
one black hood - one strong rope
no second chance nor final hope
no one cried in his home town
--- buried ---
hole was dug and that's no jest
with these words was laid to rest
“We're the last ones to let you down!”


The final line of this poem is dedicated
to Gregg Havlak, Assistant Director of
Sales Development. He is employed by
Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company.
