day 111 - Kosse, TX - the Poet and the Brute - 3/11/05
the Poet stands, about to recite his poem:
Poet: ahem...."what I..."
Poet (with hesitation): "What I once thought to be a great crevasse was just a dirty hole..."
(the Brute takes action immdediately)
Brute: all right, that's enough of that!
(the Brute seizes the Poet and brings him to the floor. the Brute's knee upon the Poet's back)
Brute: listen here--you've just been placed under citizen's arrest...
Brute (to the Merchant): sir, please call upon the proper authorities...I shall detain this barbarian until they arrive...
Merchant: we'll see him squirm!
Brute: there he goes now!
(the Poet squirms beneath the Brute's knee.)
(the Craftsman passes by)
Craftsman: I've seen him before--look at him go! like a fish! let me guess........"I thought it was a hole, but it was a ravine"!
Brute: keep to your path, sir...the proper authorities shall be here soon!
Brute (to the Poet): not your first offense, eh? you're done for now!... they'll send you to the HOOSEGOW!
Poet: I HAVE OTHER POEMS!
Brute: that's about enough of that, sir!
(with this, the Brute shoves a cloth into the Poet's mouth)
(minutes later, the police arrive)
Brute (removing the cloth): all right now! tell them what you told us!
Poet: ...."what I....what.........."
All (in unison): OUT WITH IT!!
Poet: "WHAT I ONCE THOUGHT TO BE A GREAT CREVASSE WAS JUST A DIRTY HOLE."
Brute: all right now, take this vile creature to his dungeon!
