Time Burnt Away All

Themselves 911

A Drunk Sauntered To My Phone

I Will Take Over Son

Did You Just Call 911

Drunk Talk On

So A Cop Car Came 911

Young Cop Staring At Mercedes Bodies

‘N Quick Draw His Gun

Duck Walked To Them

Not Shot

Only Cocaine’d ‘N Drunk

So Young Cop Turned To The ATM

Caring Much Why 911 Call

That Was My Exit Line

Have A Nice Ever

Ossifer ‘N Drunk Standing Staring

Dangling Phone Off Its Hook

Did You Call 911

The Drunk Talked On
