Two-Time-Low

Get me to the vet man

the vet? –
the vet is cliche man

Look
just take me to the vet
– Man

no –
no way –
sides…

that’s not even a bullet wound….
more like a cat scratch….
what you need to do is see my man
the taxidermist…..
basic same
needle and thread anyhow

The taxidermist!
Man
go forget yourself

what? why…
he’ll stitch you up good –
won’t cost you near as much neither

Man know how to keep his mouth shut?

course
he
do

Why?
What we got on him?
Not like he got a license to  sew squirrel –
worry about losin’

no –
but the man do run a moonshine still
where he hunt those squirrel

And he wouldn’t want no one special
finding out about it?

see –
better than a medical license
or
anything of that nature….

Does he offer a taste
help numb the pain
while he stitch two-time-low

two-time-low?

Butterfly –

might –
probably cost coupla bucks more….
besides i told ya –
that ain’t no bullet wound
barely a cat scratch…
