some men you can’t pray for…

some men you can’t pray for…just nothin’ you can do with ’em…gonna be mean and heartless regardless…they’d just as soon kill ya as to look at ya…shoot ya over a buck-twenty -five left on your food stamp card…these men don’t care no more…don’t think they ever did…

and you can find’em in the Bronx…or Chicago…hell…you could find ’em in Lexington, Tennessee…or out in leafy green suburbs where children play on swing-sets and slides…moms makin’ dinners…cheerleadin’ practice over at six…

these are just mean men…born into this world with a lousy temperment…no patience…an arrogance ’bout ’em…usually bored with life…see the cup half empty types…not the kinda men you’d have over after church for fried chicken and cornbread…and don’t you dare look ’em in the eye…

they’re drifters…nomads…goin’ from town to town committin’ crimes and leavin’ at a moment’s notice…comin’ and goin’ whenever it suits ’em…holdin’ up liquor stores…shootin’ gas station attendents…buryin’ bodies out in the woods…

most of these men never had a wife…or any kind of family…never knew what it was to love somethin’…truly love somethin’…somehow that aspect of life escaped ’em…

and they’ll wander the rest of their days…like packs of wild animals…hoppin’ trains…thumbin’ down rides…walkin’ from one town to the next…livin’ in homeless shelters…under bridges…camped out in parks…spendin’ nights in county jails…they don’t care…they don’t care…

some men you can’t pray for…

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
