XLII Days with Huck Finn XLII: XLII

Fall Guy on Heathen Poles

"The sun set. And Jim stood tall.
Hang old J.I.M. as an example to all?
What happens in the land of the free?
J.I.M. did not say a word, even to me."
Huck said. "Jim has  been set free."
said Tom, "Yet he stands the fall guy?"

"This town's hullabaloo is a great hoodwink.
If Jim is already free, Tom please rethink
your plan to place J.I.M. on heathen poles,
a fire pit to roast him black, over red coals."
