Two-Timin’ Simon

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #261

words:  travel, charge, stretch, chip, bullet, slime, trust, sail, stay, stand, burn, crook

You ain’t nothin’
but a slimy crook
smooth-sailin’ around
my cool waters. Well,
I am not takin’ a bullet
for you. You killed
my trust, glad you got
busted. They gonna charge
your ass, and you’ll be doin’
a long stretch. Bet they knock
that chip off your shoulder
real quick in prison. Now,
I got to travel all that way
to take the stand. Worth it,
man. Lord knows, I stayed
with you too long. Time for me
to sing my song. Time you get out,
you be a burnt out old man,
Slimy Simon.

    You have that first person narrative voice down pat in this one, and the Wordle words are slotted in very neatly. I see we opted for similar meanings for words like ‘charge’ and ‘stretch’.
