In all the days of old he made his kneeling
The crux of all the hurt that he was feeling.
In darkened rooms he feels a sudden swimming
Sensation the appears as lights are dimming.
And then he’s on the floor without a warning,
He sees the ghosts of friends begin their mourning.
The crimes of mafiosos are appalling
And soon beefed up enforcers will come brawling.
They’ll punish him for slights against their kingpin
Then bury him for boozy nights sinking gin.
John Calvin, French Theologian and pastor, died today in 1564.
Dashiell Hammett, American Author, was born on this day in 1894.
