... is my name, I'm with ...
Confronted by a villianous camarilla,
hoping to blind as many eyes as possible
our hero flashed his badge,
it wasn't meant to be. A chocolate stain
with its brilliance. Alas,
dulled its shine and the couscous crumbs
clinging to its surface made it appear pathetic,
The group's leader grinned and snorted
sarcastically, "Oooo, I'm impressed!"
He pulled a .357 magnum from under his jacket
and shot our hero
"OK everybody, head for the boat!
We gotta get outta here before
Remember, these second circle broads are nothin'
The pack faded into the fire.
Cleopatra, bored at the sight of another wounded roue,
