Bad Lad and Mad Gal

Mad Gal and Bad Lad
Bonnie and Clyde to you
Ran away
One summer day
Began their heedless rampage
Led the fuzz
A merry dance
All to no advantage.

Followed a whim
Kicked back at life
Regardless of the future
Lived in the now
They cared not how
Governed by their stupor.

Until it ended
Brought to book
Corralled with no escape
Their final scene
A lovers’ dream
A last death-wish embrace.



NOTE:  Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934) and Clyde Chestnut Barrow (March 24, 1909 – May 23, 1934) were an American criminal couple who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression, known for their bank robberies, although they preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. Their exploits captured the attention of the American press and its readership during what is occasionally referred to as the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1934. They are believed to have murdered at least nine police officers and four civilians. They were killed in May 1934 during an ambush by police near Gibsland, Louisiana. Wikipedia
