No Law Man I heard a song that mentioned, ‘hard hand intervention’. Is that what they call it when you have a kept woman? Yeah, I heard about guys like you, they do what they do to keep things in their favor. I knew one of your kind when I was in my tender years. I would go to bed hoping I would not hear him and Mom raising their voices. Well, Mom didn’t raise hers much, and neither did we. I guess that song caught my attention because a dear friend shared some things she usually wouldn’t mention. About guys like you, I know more than I wish I did. Some things from my past I can’t keep silent. I show up back home now and then, a much different man than those who raised me. I have to give them all some credit, though, when it came to most lessons in wrong and right. They were big men with big hearts for the lucky one’s in their sight. Well, it looks like I ended up like them in those fronts. Yep, I grew up big. I hear that all the time when I show up back home for a surprise visit. I grew up big, that’s right, and that is something you are going to discover soon. These words may not seem big to you when you read them, but I will. I told you, I know something about guys like you. Usually the word, “tough” depends on the company one is keeping at any given moment. In some company, I would not be considered tough. I heard about your moment, little man. Guys like you do what they can,
when they can. You have some moments coming in your future when that hard hand intervention isn’t going to work so well. I do not suppose you will toss around those same threats at me.
As a matter of fact, I do not think you will even raise your voice. You may not hear me coming, for I am not much for splashy entrances. You may not recognize me until you feel the clenching around your wrists. It will be cold, little man, it will be cold. That may be a familiar feeling considering your values system. That cold steel around your wrists , cutting off your bloodstream, is usually a temporary fix. Then again, you have not met me yet. You may be thinking of running, I would not do that if I were you. There are some gentlemen who are keeping their eyes on you from all angles. You might not describe them as gentle men. Here we go, are you ready to dance? You ready to meet the law man? I am right behind you.
