Gangster In Paradise

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



The Mafia Don that coolest of cats,
Belies all of the murder and treachery,
Sharp suits, ties of silk, so dapper in spats,
A subculture demonstrated exemplary,

Keep on fighting for top dog, putting family first,
Red carpets like the superstars of old,
Smart talk, tough life being truly immersed,
Lying dead in the gutter now cold.
