TO THE GUY WHO KEYED MY DAUGHTER'S CAR

I’ll bet you think you were unseen….
Invisible like a ghost.
Well, guess what?
You’re not as sneaky as you are stupid.
Were you really that mad about
Being beaten to a parking place?
A place she politely waited for and rightfully earned.
And, she had two little babies with her…
While YOU, a big strong guy, were by yourself.
I guess I could tell the whole world your name…
But, that won’t be necessary.
Don’t worry…
I won’t call the police.
Those who know will keep the secret well.
And,,,You’ll  NEVER need to worry about them.
They would never hurt you personally, that is.
They wouldn’t key YOUR car,
Put sugar in your gas tank,
Knock on your door at 3 AM
After toilet papering your house.
They won’t scatter Pramitol over your lawn and shrubs.
I made them promise not to hurt you in any way.
So, you’re safe,,, for now.
But, next  time… Remember…
I know who you are!
And, you don’t want to know me….

    Hi Ray, 1st congrats on your win, well deserved. Love the way you put it together and all the possible outcomes. I'm a retired cop, would I have followed suit? I really like to think so. Good writing for the future. God Bless. Dave.

    VERY good one, but i was hoping it was a joke about not doing all that stuff. I wanted you to turn around after you said I would never key your car, TP your place , etc. ... NOT!!!! congrats, well deserved.

    Hi there Ray, I really liked this one, this says a lot on so many levels, one of forgiveness, and kindness but also a way of saying, don't cross that line a second time. Great write!!
