Bonnie and Clyde


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

The devil he smiled at me his partner in crime
He smiles like this only for me everyone else gets a snarl and a leer
I'd like to say I hate it but I come back to him time after time
The badness, the excitement it's been the best couple of years

His manic grin and his wild, wild eyes
I made a pact with this perfection, break it? I'd rather die
We feed from the weak and grow strong with their cries
It's romantic you see, like watching a glorious sunrise

It's only him, it's only me with steel in our hand
We take what we want and live by our code
People lives and their souls slip through our blood stained fingers like grains of sand
Another town another city, so many to choose it's time to hit the road

They'll never catch my devil, for that he's to cool
He wraps me in badness and shields me from death
Shaped in his image his all supporting fuel
We will fight side by side till our last dying breath

I am no longer Bonnie, he is no Clyde
Were one body of badness taking life as we go
Together for always to the end of this ride
We'll live for ever, together, this I know

    Hi Jools, I love this poem. It reminds me of a poem I wrote for my wife. The title is Partner In Crime and the picture is of Bonnie & Clyde.

    Take care - Syd
