    As I said before, you are a real story teller. This one is somewhat reminiscent of Micky Spillane. I used to stay up late at night and watch the old classics with my Dad every week-end. Midway, we would go out for something to eat, then come back and stay up till way past dawn. That was our big activity together. You took me back. It was fun.

    On second thought, this would be earlier than Mike Hammer. This is more George Raft and Bogart. Pleas forgive the error in time periods. I'm getting sleepy. Bev

    This was a very entertaining poem and it took me back in time to the gangster era of 1930's Chicago. Great work, Tom. I loved it!...Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments on my poems. I really appreciate it that you took the time to read my work!

    wow, this is GREAT writing. I liked the way you injected colloquial language into it and the pure nostalgia of it all. gosh dang, if this is true, you are older than my mom! Way to stay mentally alert and writing your heart out!!

    I like the way it reads. I'm no American either so it went just fine for me. Looks a whole like a short story for my lik'n though, or am I missing something?
