when they came and took away his Irish whiskey
he stood up to them and said you can’t do this to me
when they came to take his driver’s license away
he warned them and said I’ll get it back someday
when they came after his ’49 Chevrolet one night
he was waiting for them and they got into a fight
when they came after his marijuana field
he made a deal to share the harvest’s yield
when his freedom was subject to a bogus law
the pending injustice was the last straw
he withdrew from civilization
and went into hibernation
A bullet speeding at 1200 miles per hour suddenly frozen in time as the victim sees it coming. Lead incased in copper hovers in space, defying gravity, yet still eager to reach it’s destination. A lethal greeting coming from the shooter. Finally, deadly impact.
For a moment, the train seems to be far away. The man’s foot is stuck on the track making him captive to the hurdling engine coming his way. For a frozen moment he imagines getting loose. Impact.
A miracle baby is born and the parents world slows down and becomes frozen in love from that first moment.
