(part one here)
Here’s the second part of the story I got to tell.
The one where one got got, and the other got shot.
One person. Two people. A lover’s feud.
Death. That’s what happens in Part II.
Jack and Dianne were their names I guess.
It is a made up poem, set in the Midwest.
So I will try and write a prairie poem
About these two.
And as the poem goes on, we figure out the plot.
About the Angel Face who stabbed the Devil in the back
When she looked back to get back from the place where she was at.
So, I am distracted, your character actor
Writing this poem, on a Jon Deer Tractor.
Well, here is the gist, so if you know better than I do.
Here is the poem, this is Part II.
No more, no less, a poem about the angel in a blue dress.
Maybe Part III will have more clarity.
But for now, I will leave you in suspense,
Who shot the Devil was it the Angel in the blue dress?
