Suits With Shotguns

by dbdevilliers

They kicked in the front
door they broke in the
windows they were waiting
out back they were
waiting out back where
you fled out back and
it wasn’t a pistol in
your hand but they
thought it was they’re just doing
their jobs of course who could
fault them for that and
they got you six
times double aught
buck you didn’t go
quietly turns out your
aunt came down and wasn’t
sure since there wasn’t
much left to go on with
much certainty but a DNA
match off a comb and
they matched it and
she didn’t cry but
she did raise you from four years
old and she
did put a bullet in
her head
it was a sad story
and I can’t tell it worth
a fuck.
