A Dame To Kill For



Set In Chicago 1931, Prohibition Is Everywhere, Sound Of Tommy Gun's Ring Out In The Early Dawn

With Gangsters Flooding This Town

Of illegal Alcohol And Soup Kitchens Being Setup Around The City,

And Then This Dame Walks In With Looks To Kill For, That I'm Distracted By Her Beauty That I Can Not Concentrate On The Task At Hand, Which Is Making Sure That The Cathouses We Control Are Free Of Low Life's Which Is Where

I Come In, I Work For One Of The Toughest Irish Families In Bridgeport, The Headquarters Are Located In A Irish Tavern Which Is On Halsted Rd.

Our Daily Operations Consist Of Loansharking, Bribery, And Prostitution

I Work For Mickey Doyle

As An Enforcer..

My Name Is Jimmy Sullivan,

When Mickey Doyle Was 17

His First Offense Was Ripping Off

Corner Stores And By The Age Of 20

He Was Jacking Trucks Of High End Merchandise, Furs And Even Radio's..

I Knew Mickey From School,

He Had A Gang In The Neighborhood Where I Lived In Bridgeport,

Their Were Four Of Us In The Gang..

Mickey Was The Leader

I Was An Still Am, An Enforcer

Brian O'Neil Was A Wheelman

An Then There Was Tommy McShane Who Died Trying To Rob A Bank

But Got Shot By The Police,

In School Mickey's Rackets Were Gambling And Intimidation,

Mickey Loved Intimidating The Other Kids In Order To Give Up Their

Milk Money, On The Other Hand..

I've Always Been This Scrawny Kid

Who Let The Other Kids In School

Bully Me Because I Was An

Easy Target,

Mickey Always Stood Up For Me

He Intimidated The Other Kids With

A Snub Nose Pistol,

Mickey Handed The Gun To Me

An Said..

" This Is Yours "

We've Been Close, Like Brothers..

Brian O'Neil Started His Own Racket Which Is Soup Kitchens And He Takes 15% Percent Of All The Soup That's Sold,

I've Tasted The Soup Which Smells Like Rat Poison But If People Are Hungry

They Won't Complain,

Now More And More Soup Kitchens Seem To Open Because Of

Brian O'Neil,

I've Been Working Days On End

Without Time Off Because What We Do Is A Dirty Business.. The Other Day Mickey Wanted Me To Collect A Debt That Was Owed To Him,

But This Prick Didn't Want To Pay

So I Scared The Shit Out Of Him

Thinking I Was Gonna Throw Him Off The Wabash Avenue Bridge

Into The Frigid Chicago River,

I've Got Other Things On My Mind..

Like Seeing This Dame Who Works At This Diner Over In Riverside..

Her Name Is Kathleen Donovan,

I Was About To Take Her To

Chez Paree A Local Nightspot

When I Got A Phone Call

From Patrick McReary

Saying That Our Shipment Of Alcohol Just Got Highjacked, I've Decided To Head Back To The Lucky Shamrock

And See What Mickey Wants To Do

As He Decide's I'll Smoke A Cigarette, Here I Promised Kathleen That I Would Take Her Out.. I Even Told Mickey, Minutes Later Mickey Comes Out Of His Office And Says He'll Let Patrick Deal With The Problem,

Before I Go Mickey Whispers In My Ear An Says..

" You've Got A Beautiful Girl "

So I Hail A Cab To Union Station,

Because Kathleen And I Will Be Heading Out To Los Angeles..

So Kathleen Can Follow Her Dream Of Being A Big Time Actress,

And Because I Want To Getaway From Chicago For Awhile.. As I Wait On The Train Platform I Notice A Mother Doting On Her Young Child,

Then I Spot A Newsboy

Selling Newspapers As He Says..

" Extra, Extra Read All About It! "

As The Train Pull's Into The Station,

Steam Billows From The Train

On To The Tracks..

The Conductor Emerges From The Train, Letting Everyone Know They Must Have Their Tickets Ready To Be Punched,

As I Board The Train..

I Hand The Tickets To The Conductor,

As I Sit Down

I Notice A Kid Sitting Across From Me He Looks At Me

An Says..

" Hi, I'm Seamus "

I Reply Back And Say

" Good Morning, I'm Jimmy "

Seamus Looks At Me And Asks " Who's The Dame? "

I Say..

" Kathleen "

When The Conductor Emerges

To The Platform,

An Says..

" All Aboard "

As The Train Leaves The Station

I Get A Sense I'll Never See Chicago,

The Sounds, Wind Blowing

On My Face..

As I Make My Way Toward

The Dining Car

I Grab The First Available Booth,

Waitress Walks Over

And Says..

" My Names Becky,

I'll Be Your Waitress"

I Reply And Say..

" I'll Have A Couple Of Eggs,

Rye Bread On The Side "

She Says..

" Anything Else, Sir "

I Say..

" Coffee, Cream On The Side "

Kathleen Enters The Dining Car

After Having An Afternoon Nap

Walks Toward The Booth And Sits

As She Gazes At The Menu

I Look At My Watch,

Then Glance Out The Window

Just Then Seamus Enters

The Dining Car

Walks Over To The Bar

Pulling From His Pocket,

A Flask Which I Can Just Imagine

Has Alcohol Inside..

He Speaks With The Bartender

An Shows Him A Silver Flask

If Only I Could Be Earshot

Listening To Their Conversation

Just Then Seamus Heads For The Door

When He Spots Kathleen And I,

He Walks Over And Says..

" Funny, Meeting You Here "

I Reply And Say..

" Well It's A Long Trip "

Then Seamus Says..

" Yeah, I Just Stopped In For A Drink "

Kathleen Lifts Her Head Up

From The Menu And Waves

For The Waitress

And Says..

" I'll Take A Greek Salad

With Garlic Bread "

Then Jimmy Cuts In An Says..

The Waitress Goes Back To Her Podium

To Figure Out The Bill,

When Seamus Gets Up From The Table

An Says..

" It's Been Nice Talking To You "

Kathleen Gets Up From The Table
