An Unknown Man in Jail Cries for Help **

by butterflyzrfree

A previously unknown man who could not make his bail Cried out "Help!"
"When I was younger so much younger than today"he then said "I never needed anybody's help in any way"
The policeman was trying to shut him up, but the man was very upset and polite to this reporter. He next said 'But now those days are gone I'm just so insecure. I feel I need someone to OPEN UP THAT DOOR!!!!"Then, he pointed angrily at the prison door. At that point this reporter was removed from the room while the man continued yelling at that point about all of the help he needed. This reporter felt sorry for him.
The next day this reporter discovered that the prisoner could still not make bail. So he snuck in (yes, there is a way to sneak in, but it cannot be revealed or everyone I know will get arrested).
The prisoner told this reporter, in a sorrowful voice "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now I need a place to hide away, oh I believe in yesterday" He began telling this reporter about how he did not feel half the man that he used to be when the stupid cop jerked said reporter out of the room and kicked him into the parking lot right on his butt with actual threats uttered. These were awful threats, with lots of cuss words, and cannot even be printed here. That is how awful they were. Enough to deeply hurt a person's feelings.
After a couple of days, it was finally safe to carefully sneak in but only halfway through the secret tunnel (oops!) and listened to what a friend was saying to the prisoner: "Hey, Jude, don't make it bad, take this sad song, and make it better. " and "remember to let it into your heart, then you can start to make it better, hey Jude, dont be afraid...." when he was also siezed, this time by two giant police and thrown out and beaten harshly by these cops as they had nothing to hide, they knew it would never get into the paper.
This was a real opportunity! First, it was finally revealed that the guys name was Jude. Second, I cornered the man, whose name was Jphn L. He went by John L. for secrecy. He was trying to make his getaway, when he was intercepted by me, a lonely helpful kind reporter. Finally, it was revealed what the charges were.
Jude was from England! and he, and his buddy John (according to John L. were 'gonna play in their band at 'oh, I dunno" so now they had to cancel the gig. It was terrible. John L. said that several tens of thousands would be there, which of course I didn't believe, who would? , but before anyone could speak giant packs of screaming girls attacked us, and we had to escape. An even better tunnel (he had been to the prison before) got us out. Eventually his band got Jude out and everything was OK.

However, this reporter, is in humongous trouble.

**Al lyrics credited to the Beatles or Paul McCartney band This article is not true and anything about the Beatles is made up. Hope evryone enjoyed it!

Ah yes, I think I saw this is one someplace else. Or was it a dream? I like these short story prose type poems. I have a few myself. I may have to post a few.
