If only Johnny Park had been paying attention,
that sultry summer evening, to the look on her face
he wouldn't have forced the issue, sealing a fate
of twenty-seven years later, when Imelda May
had decided she'd had enough, too much,
and Johnny wouldn't have found out the hard way
Imelda had been watching carefully,
when she took off the safety, and paid him back

  5. I love the fact that you came up with an amazing story from a picture.
