I do love a good challenge. To start the week off on a good note, I’ll throw out this little ditty – Bonnie and Clyde Run Amuck.
The rules are simple. There are no rules. Wait, that’s not right. The rules are as follows:
- Pick any famous couple from the past (By past I mean: any couple from 1880 – to 1980).
- Explain shortly your choice (you can add photo if you like).
- Add the quote from the ‘famous couple’.
- The style and the genre of the writing – any.
- Nominate up to 3-5 blogs. Link to the page that nominated you. Have fun!
I however will be nominating no blogs. Just writing. Here goes the tale of Bonnie and Clyde Run Amuck.
“This here’s Miss Bonnie Parker. I’m Clyde Barrow. We rob banks.” Clyde said this as Bonnie brought out cases to fill with cash.
“I might make a criminal out of you, yet, Clyde Barrow,” said Bonnie.
“Doll, you already have. Now, while we rob this bank, here, see, Bonnie’s gonna read to ya,” Clyde said. “Bonnie, read ‘em the poem you wrote.”
“While I stash your cash from the bank vault,
just know when I say it’s not my fault.
You see, the cops apprehend every Tom, Dick, and Red,
our only fighting stance is to leave you dead.
When detectives come, and, oh, they will,
you won’t know it, you’ll be shot dead still.”
“Smashing, Bonnie,” and with that, Clyde opened his Gatling gun and took the white from every eye he saw. Bodies were strung about the bank, one on top of the other. They stacked all the bank notes in their bags and walked out the door.
“You know what kind of car this is, Clyde?” Bonnie pointed at a stationary Ford.
“It’s a 4-cylinder Ford Coupe, doll,” Clyde said confidently.
“Nope,” Bonnie shot back, “it’s a stolen 4-cylinder Ford Coupe.” And on that note, they drove away in a stolen Ford.
