Wyatt B. Flat

Poem By Tony Avila Sampson

Wyatt B. Flat is truly my name,
And punishment awaits those who I blame;

With a long knife that I swiftly swing,
Brings from a tire the sound of air leaking;

Some found their cars sitting lopsided or low,
Cause it gives me a thrill to get even, you know;

At each tire, with force, be the knife I thrust,
It releases the air inside with a windy gust;

The air, when cut free, makes a loud gushing sound,
And with quickness them rims go down to the ground;

I may, while slashing 'em, just suddenly stop,
Just to watch, with joy, the way they drop;

I may even give 'em a second quick slice,
Cause I don't care about the cost nor price;

Gettin' all four, leaves a car that can't go,
Then comes the surprise to find the need for a tow;

Oh, the inconvienence they get while they foot the bill,
But for Wyatt B. Flat, there be laughter and thrill;

Was TIME born with all the sky?
Can TIME suffer and also die?
Is TIME flat? Or is TIME round?
Where is TIME? Can TIME be found?

Murder, In The First Degree

He went to a public library that's quiet and free;
Arrested, he was, for murder, in the first degree;

Inside the library, there was a book to find,


Feel captivities firm grip smother out the fun,
The stretch of its reach felt with each pass of the sun;

Metal doors slam shut, rumbling their echos down the hall,

Oh, Doctor Smitty, It's Me, Rhondity

Oh, Doctor Smitty,
It's me, Rhondity,
My breasts need more bounce, and extra durability;

Your Four Tires

You have made me so very fierce,
So your car tires, I now will pierce;

To find you car then, yes I must

The Tongue

To slip on the pavement is a far better pain,
Than the tongue that slips, its trouble to gain;

A sweltering tongue comes full of much scorn,
