Chilled Wine

Chilled Wine

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Re; Mary and Hugh and the lamb incident


Newly Informed authorities were seen

Arriving at Mary’s farm to make an arrest

Last seen of that very attractive sweet miss

Was as she was dragged off still half dressed


Although Hugh’s DNA had turned up in the farmyard

Mary was quickly back out on bail

The Judge, who had an eye for a good looker

Was not going to leave this sweetheart, rotting in jail


Both seen together, vacationing in the Caribbean

Although litigation had started back at the farm

Hugh’s body had been dug up as evidence

But so deteriorated it could do little harm


With the mess of a divorce being put behind him

The Judge had evidence sabotaged, for a big buck

But Mary, now completely free of all charges

Didn’t want to be stuck with this bulbous lame duck


Her brother, known as a “problem” solver

Who in fact had fixed the original problem of Hugh

Using his exceptional excavating expertise

Knew with the Judge, just what to do



Mary is happily back again on the farm

Hugh’s excavation has been suitably refilled

And she’s taken to celebrating her good fortune

With her wine always being perfectly chilled

I find it amazing how many bodies can be cast aside before people start to get suspicious of a person like this. Since I'm reading Centennial (settling the west), there's a ton of this kind of thinking . . . if someone gets in your way, just blast 'em! In particular Natives & buffalo, but also anyone who sympathizes with fairness. In fact, I marvel at the parallels between this late 1800's wild west mojo & the identical thinking that seems to be behind today's gun-totin' skinheads. In summation, your poem makes me wish I had the juevos to knock off some of my life's problems along the way but it's easier to just hole up in the hills & ignore 'em! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

your concept of holing up looks like a decent way to go
The pour soul that may come across the beautiful Mary the next time around.

And her brother with his forever lay away plan capabilities
Neither one is any bargain

Oh hell I hope not
what a clever, amusing take on Mary had a little Lamb...
I think she and the judge fleeced the county in this one.

Fleeced indeed, but poor judgement on his behalf
Thanks for stopping by
