Default Masters Of America


Annie Oakley
go and get your gun
bosses run amok and
Johnny's at the station
waiting for a clean getaway
we don't need bullets Oaksy
just a shot of that their Jack'll do.

maybe there in place of their in the last line

And I wonder if you know what an incredibly fine shot Ms. Oakley was.

She went into retirement, an impostor appeared on the scene and was basking in Annie's reputation (not doing any shooting - partying with party types) and got busted for Cocaine use.

That brought Annie out of seclusion like a ... shit, how can I resist ... like a shot.

She set her sights (yeah, a little more subtle this time) on setting the public image of her right.

After consistently nailin' all designated marks she slipped back into history.

Well, I wasn’t writing poetry at all because when I do
It always ends up
Stupid or silly or childish.

And the grammar and
Shape of it all
(Apparently the shape of it is important)
Eludes my sense of design.

I forget to capitalize
Or not capitalize
Or blah, blah, blah
The fucking form
Until it just looks like
A messy word stew.

I bet some others
Have this problem too.
