Almost as Good as a Jawbone~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Almost as Good as a Jawbone

(Dedicated to the surgeon who disabled me – and got away with it)

“Samson Smiting a Philistine”
Painting by Giorgio Schiavone
From art.com

got a good granite rock in my hand
what say I smash up
your fine lettered glass
and then kick your silk ass
from right here where you left me
poisoned and broken
straight through your slick upright
Harvard caduceus
split you in two like your knife did to me
then our halves can each fight
one another for double the justice
but guess what you asshole
I grew up with Samson in biblical alleys
where fighting was living
and banging out cold retribution
was making our bones
any one of the men I knocked prone in their piss
was your better by far
because none of those men ever bullshit
an oath like you did when you promised
to first do no harm
