Ain't Justice Poetic

High up Mount Fable

where gales sweep around

There’s a rusty old Chev

burnt low to the ground


Not any old coupe

with no story to tell

But one thieved by the Wild Cats

in legends that swell


The Wild Cats were robbers

twins Meg and Peg Steele

Meg handled the hold ups

Peg stayed at the wheel


Meg said:

⁃ This is a hold up

so don’t make a sound

⁃ Phones in the bag

now get on the ground

⁃ Keep the hands high

and you on the floor

⁃ Go to the safe

and open the door


Soon banks in the county

looked out for the pair

Who'd flee from a vault

with the law unaware


Notoriety you know

goes only so far

Cable news got footage

of the getaway car


In that summer of fate

one heist came undone

A surprise hostage taker

at point of a gun


He said:

⁃ This is a hold up

so don’t make a sound

⁃ A gun’s at your back

it has a full round

⁃ Do as I say

and you’ll stay alive

⁃ Now get in the front

let’s go for a drive


The felon gave orders

to drive outside town

But on Fable Road

the Chevy broke down


Some folks recall gunfire

others speak of a blast

With all said and done

truth stays in the past


The Wild Cats are gone

so too is that felon

Ain’t justice poetic

when nobody’s tellin’


Meg said:

⁃ This is a hold up

so don’t make a sound

⁃ Phones in the bag

now get on the ground

⁃ Keep the hands high

and you on the floor

⁃ Go to the safe

and open the door


Ain’t justice poetic

when nobody’s tellin’

Ain’t justice poetic

without all the yellin’


He said:

⁃ This is a hold up

so don’t make a sound

⁃ A gun’s at your back

it has a full round

⁃ Do as I say

and you’ll stay alive

⁃ Now get in the front

let’s go for a drive


Nah, nah, nah, nah

Nah-nah-nah-nah

Poetic justice

Nah-nah-nah-nah


Nah, nah, nah, nah

Nah-nah-nah-nah

Nobody’s tellin’

Nah-nah-nah-nah
