The Bonnie and Clyde old poem

You’ve read the story of Jesse James of how he lived and died. If you’re still in need; of something to read, here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde.

Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang. I’m sure you all have read. How they rob and steal; and those who squeal, are usually found dying or dead.

There’s lots of untruths to these write-ups; they’re not as ruthless as that. Their nature is raw; they hate all the law, the stool pigeons, spotters and rats.

They call them cold-blooded killers; they say they are heartless and mean. But I say this with pride, that I once knew Clyde, when he was honest and upright and clean.

But the law fooled around; kept taking him down, and locking him up in a cell. Till he said to me; “I’ll never be free, so I’ll meet a few of them in hell”

The road was so dimly lighted, there were no highway signs to guide. But they made up their minds; if all roads were blind, they wouldn’t give up till they died.

The road gets dimmer and dimmer, sometimes you can hardly see. But it’s fight man to man, and do all you can, for they know they can never be free.

From heart-break some people have suffered, from weariness some people have died. But take it all in all; our troubles are small, till we get like Bonnie and Clyde.

If a policeman is killed in Dallas, and they have no clue or guide. If they can’t find a fiend, they just wipe their slate clean and hang it on Bonnie and Clyde.

There’s two crimes committed in America, not accredited to the Barrow mob. They had no hand; in the kidnap demand, nor the Kansas City Depot job.

A newsboy once said to his buddy; “I wish old Clyde would get jumped. In these awfull hard times; we’d make a few dimes, if five or six cops would get bumped”.

The police haven’t got the report yet, but Clyde called me up today. He said, “Don’t start any fights; we aren’t working nights, we’re joining the NRA.”

From Irving to West Dallas viaduct, is known as the Great Divide. Where the women are kin; and the men are men, and they won’t “stool” on Bonnie and Clyde.

If they try to act like citizens, and rent them a nice little flat. About the third night; they’re invited to fight, by a sub-gun’s rat-tat-tat.

They don’t think they’re too smart or desperate, they know that the law always wins. They’ve been shot at before; but they do not ignore, that death is the wages of sin.

Some day they’ll go down together, they’ll bury them side by side. To few it’ll be grief, to the law a relief, but it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.

-Bonnie Parker, at age 23 before her death with Clyde Barrow, at age 25.

This is the old 1# Bonnie and Clyde poem that talks about them. Written by Bonnie Parker herself. Mentioned and written in that Oscar winning movie, this is very famous since “Flanders Fields”. This shows how they once were, and how they committed crimes during the Great Depression. By avoiding the police in the states of Oklahoma and Texas, they didn’t stop until that fateful day that they got into. The day when they were shot in sight.

“Bonnie and Clyde” that movie, may have not won Best Picture, but it sure made motion picture history. Which was why that just only won two Oscar awards.
