Treasure Island

A life story-'Think before you act'


There once was a boy named Rick. Hard boy Rick thought he was the shit. Rick never backed down, never even slipped. Rick killed everyday, many throats were slit. Rick was hated by many, but confronted by none. Rick penetrated his girl Tracy, now Tracy and Rick had a son. Rick ran the streets searching for something that wasnt there. His mamma tried to tell him, but he just didnt care. One day Rick slipped and his throat was slit. Rick was found shot dead in a ditch. Rick had won the battle, but lost the war. Now Ricks son, Jr., dont have a daddy no more.

    Rick was a dick. Maybe even a prick. Would slit your throat at the shake of a stick. Little Rick will be a good sort, and not follow his dad. Or mommie gonna get really, really mad. 'S' (Report) Reply
