I answered the phone on the third ring and a man said,"I'm sorry, miss, but I gotta say your 
brother's in jail."
Well, it didn't worry me none I knew what we had done, so I decided I'd get him out, I'd go 
post bail.
I made it down to the old police station, but that's about as far as I got
cause the police had found something in my basement that had started to rot.
Well, it didn't worry me none my husband knew what my brother and I had done,
so I called him up told him to find my big sis and have her hide the smoking gun.
My brother and I we talked all night 'bout our 'Great Escape' and our time with prison life.
Daddy showed up, he crossed his arms, he shook his head, and said,"You didn't hide the 
When he walked out Mama stormed in screaming loud shaking her fist in the air 
saying,"How'd you make that flaw?"
We hung our heads didn't say a word cause no one like Mama mad especially when she was 
running from the law.
A few days past my brother and I, we went to court and when the judge said,"Tell the truth." 
I said, "Guilty."
"Her body was in my basement, a bloody knife was in my closet, a smoking gun under my 
pillow. I did it can't you see?
I never liked her much myself, but my brother loved her and I loved him so I just learned to 
but I caught her cheating on my lil brother and so her life I planned to steal.
I found out where he hid the gun and when he heard the news he found were I hid the knife 
and we got rid of the pest.
Now you can say I'm guilty and call me a murderer, but I really don't see the harm in killing 
my brother's ex."
My brother started to laugh and the judge began shouting,"Get these two out of here. Out! 
Out! Out!"
Well just about that time someone yelled, "Bombs away!" and our sister came threw a hole 
in the wall,"Guilty without a doubt."
We hopped into her red pick up truck waving good bye to the confused judge and puzzled 
and road off into the sunset on our way to the middle of nowhere some where in Missouri.

*No, I'm not a wanted criminal. No, there is no proof I did any of this. I made sure we got 
rid of the evidence... :) just kidding...but seriously I'm not a wanted criminal.
