grand funk was playing on the juke that night,
jim — or maybe it was jack — was behind
the bar. back then the main crowd was made up
of the fivecarltonbrothers, the white brothers,
jimmy-o, slim jones, and bobby d. some
dude walked in around nine, and this was no
big deal as there was always walk-ins here
at yella dove — so, anyway, this dude
all dressed like some east coast pimp struts on in
and orders a tanqueray and tonic—
this is not gin country, just to tell ya—
and then this dude presumes to pronounce his
opinion on the merits of grand funk!
I doubt they ever will find the body . . .
