How They Met God

“You ever hear the one about Cassius Clay and the laight-switch?” No. “Alright, Alright, well according to legend.” What kinda legends you talkin’ these days? “Hear me out now, ya see, Legend has it that Cassius Clay was so fast he’d been in a hotel room, right” Oh shoot, alright. “Listen now, he’d be in this hotel room, and before he’d go to bed, he’d get up to turn off the laight-switch, but he’d be back in bed sleeping before the room got dark!”

Nick slammed his fist down
Walter poured them both more gin
Laughter filled the scene.

Ahh man! You sure is one dumb son of a you know what waltz, but you show are funny! “You ever hear the one about the unsinkable ship and the iceberg?” Not now waltz I can’t take you joking anymore. “Shoot Nick, you wanna know something?” Lemme hear it. “In spite of ourselves, I think were gonna make it outta here, and when we do, were gonna be sitting on rainbows.”

Off in the distance
Danger hid amongst the brush-
Men of the jungle

Rainbows! You really think so? “I knows so, you know Nick, Gods got a little somthin’ planned for each of us” Yeah? What chu think he got planned for us now? “For you Nicky, I ani’t too sure.” Shoot Waltz, I’m pretty sure God’s got you cut on out to be some sorta comdiean or somethin’ “Maybe so, whatever it is he’s up their thinkin’, I knows it’s gonna be best.” I wanna go home Waltz. “Soon enough Nick, Soon enough.

When out of thin air
Gunfire like sideways rain
Shattered gin glasses

Together they sat
Upon rainbows with their God
Lit up smokes, cracked jokes

“Ya see Nick, I told ya it was gonna be best.” Yous was raight Waltz, this even better then home.
