Stumpy and the Decision Tree              by Thorold May

      page seven
Stumpy rocked back on his heels and smiled,
He tipped his hat and bowed;
You've got more marbles than most round here
So I'll put it straight on the line -
There's a contract going with gods and a tree:
Can I count you in to thread wires?

The Electric Warrior stopped in mid-suck,
For an instant his gaze clouded  over;
You on a head trip? You smoke some bad dope?
Whatta' you want me to say? Look you old goat
There's a call on my mobile;
I gotta' get down to the bay.
