Dateline NOLA

it was pretty quiet that night on Bourbon St.

not many people walking around

the music was turned down, then off

let ‘em work on the victim in peace

a stab wound, a fatal wound 

the drink will flow the blood will spill indeed

rooted in randomness

police cars all around

that tamped down the festivities

how dare they?

a fire truck washing down the sidewalk

hide that unsightly blood

tonight it’s back to normal

loud music, loud people

the liquor will pour

who could ask for more?

life in the French Quarter goes on

except for the guy who got slashed

and was D.O.A.
