Know Thy Place

KNOW THY PLACE This good man, nicknamed John Wayne ,had A reckless sense of confrontation, seasoned with his furtive sense of honor, true streetwise code his badge of armor. †
A Strangers clueless stand, insulting innocents out of hand ,A feckless tense situation fueled unreasoned stress and trouble , the otherwise unconverted scholar breathing puffery through tightened collar.
A perverted Careening uncollected mix of bravado bluffs and parlor tricks. False pride ignoring the timer clicks
Crossed a line he just canít fix.
Thereís a kinda hush thatís loud within the crowds like minds , a whispered ďOH OHĒ enjoined all like common Shout. Myself I heard Jim Croce sing,when windy donít expectorate tug capes pull masks or like fools create
Some stared anxious for this Strangers fate
I looked away cuz bloods no fun, I just dialed nine one one
