** Hit & Run **
I came up on a twisted scene
A hit and run, two cars between
One went sideways, the other swerved,
It was a straight-away, no highway curve.
Down on the pavement, a muddy coat
The collar was red from a bloody throat.

The witness total was two or three
Conflicting stories, that don’t agree
The car was red, no an icy blue,
An old corvette, no a 2002.

A cloudy night or was it clear?
The car and driver disappeared.

- - No sight, no sound, no evidence,
- - You had the right of way, that’s your defense.

A plan laid out, one couldn’t prevent
Just make it look like an accident.
The way it happened on the driver’s side
It might even look like suicide.

You can fool your friends and your enemies,
It’s a list so long, what a comedy.
Fool the cops and the deputies,
Even fool yourself, but you can’t fool me.

Ah you think you’re clever, with your alibis
But I can cross your whens, and dot your whys.
You like to play with words, so now conjugate,
"I’ve got the last four digits of your license plate."

Lianne Smith New York

I write songs about standing in the middle of the road and wondering which way to go, about how others cheat us and how we cheat ourselves, about free-wheeling, bicycle riding, look-ma-no-hands exhilarations, and how it feels to say goodbye to summer.
