Jumpertown city Mississippi Alt 580 Pop 2244
The traffic stopped before the bump
‘Didja see it, Eugene, didja see it?,
Hit the ground with a heckuva whump!
A bigger buzzard never flew.’
‘’Tweren’t no bird, Vic, it didn’t fly
just sorta fell a long way down
cain’t see no bird if’n I try.’
The policeman directed and shuffled the cars,
onlookers went back to the girly bars.
An ambulance came and the policeman went.
They surrounded the birdy with a plastic tent.
Two old guys from way out of town
went over to look at the mess on the ground.
They turned away with a shake of the head,
'helluva way to paint the town red.'
