It all started out well
Pa was respected by all
the Boss he worked for liked him
but pa was in for a fall!

One night his inquisitive son
wanted to know were his Pa would go
always wondering what he did
keen, yet determined to know.

He slipped under the back seat
of his Fathers newish car
catching blinking lights in the street
going out of Town by far.

At an abandoned warehouse they stopped
the boy got out after all was clear
he found the whole episode exciting
his hand was shaking with fear.

He found a crack in the door
through it he saw a man
he was standing in front of the entrance
thats were the nightmare began.

he was deafened by a loud bang
as three men hit the floor
the man at the door was shouting
then rushed to open the door.

The boy tried to run in the pouring rain
but the fence was too high to climb
he was numb and full of fear by now
at this horrid henious crime.

The Boss's son was ruthless
he would kill for any reason
he knew his father was in bad health
and would not last this season.

After they got home the boy couldnt speak
he was still in shock from that night
now he knew what he was desperate to know
trying to hide it with all his might.

The Boss's Son not content with that
was out to eradicate his tracks
he sought to wipe out the boy and  his Mom
without even having the facts.

It turned out the younger brother had died
along with his Mom that night
Pa and the boy had to get out quick
avenged to make things right.

Pa started hurting the Mob deeply
by robbing their cash from banks
the more he stole the more it hurt
anything from dollars to francs.

A hit man was hired by the Boss
to find this man and boy
a ruthless guy was contracted
to locate and destroy.

Pa got revenge he caught everyone
including the Boss's son
he even got the Boss himself
now it was time to run.

Eventually the hitman caught them up
thats when Pa got a bullet in the back
the boy picked up the gun and fired
al he could do was aim then attack.

Pa was dead, the boy was all alone
as he backtracked to the farm
live the rest of his life in peace
stay out of treachery and harm.

  16. The thought came to me while reading, that sounds like it is from a movie, but what movie I don't know since I don't watch that many movies. I am an Law & Order fan. LOL

  17. Wow, a famous movie, eh? Now... realize I have NOT peeked at anyone' comments. Is it about Jessie James? I have no idea. I do love how you move a story right along, a nice talent to have. I am not much of a story-teller myself, and I admrie that in those of you who do it so well.

  18. @Jannie Funster
    hehhehe I thought u would have gotten in right away, seems it is more difficult than it seems, I am going to leave it at that until some clever person comes up with the answer :) I appreciate everyone having a go :)
