A WOMAN WALKED INTO THE BAR

 

 

I sat in a bar listening to music.

Then a woman walked in.

 

Her green eyes punched me in the chest.

Her smile kicked my balls, dropping me to my knees.

 

A mustached gentleman in a thick blue sweater

Smiled and helped me up.

 

But then her green eyes stabbed me to death.  

I sat there, dead and wondered if the police

would come...

 

But they never did.

They never do.

So I ordered another drink.
