The given words:
become beloved cruel cloak cash  
prison skirt wild pursuit Venus goods

Jostling for positions everyone
were there putting up their case
Was not sure what had become
of his beloved missing without a trace

A cruel twist of fate with bad results
Shrouded under a cloak of mystery
There were questions left unanswered
Wherefore were the cash and money

The spoils were hidden but where
Mastermind in prison but not others
One a known skirt chaser all were aware
In wild pursuit in keeping with his prowess

The object of his love Venus by name
Loot and goods stashed securely in his hands
Made for life he thought without conscience
He had no qualms betraying his friends

  3. yikes...he sounds like a bad one to tussle with...makes me think of a few of the shows i watch on tv...ha

  4. No qualms!

  5. What friends? His business didn't run to them I am sure. Fear was their bedfellow.

  6. I had that car once...a cruel twist of fate.

  7. I'd be afraid of the car alone looming up in the rear mirror..this had a real sense of story to it..very rich

  8. I agree--rich story here.
