Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #157: Getting Away. My take on the theme suggested by Rusha and Bert.
A contribution for Paula’s Pick A Word in June: Reflecting.
An entry for Thursday’s Special at Paula’s Lost in Translation.
Hometown hero flexing his arm
With a five-yard pass to the end of the bar
He says, “I’ll be right back I’m just gonna go grab another pack.”
Walks one block to the all-night station
And steps into a situation
There’s a man with a gun pointed at the nervous clerk
And before he could think
He was tackling the gunman
Who hit his head and was knocked unconscious
The clerk relieved said, “Oh my god
You’re a hero man and you should stick around
‘Til the cops get here, maybe you’ll make the morning news.”
But the hometown hero rose to his feet
Tossed him the gun and said, “Thanks, but I’ve gotta run
I’ll take a pack of camel lights and be on my way.”
When will I ever be safe from myself
If the danger all lies between heaven and hell?
When I close my eyes, I’m not falling asleep
I am opening drawers, I am sifting through papers
Please stay a while, I’m not falling asleep
I’m not falling asleep, I’m not falling asleep
The Noir Suites will have to take a break – simply because my picture making does not catch up with my posting. (Again!) However, production is up and and running, and there will be a couple of new scenes soon. As for tody here’s a Landscape with Car.
