60. Two Hangmen - Mason Proffit



"
He talked to all the people from his scaffold in the square
He told them of the things he found but they didn't seem to care
He said the laws were obsolete, a change they should demand,
But the people only walked away, he couldn't understand

The Marshall's name was Uncle Sam, he said he'd right this wrong
He'd make the hangman shut his mouth if it took him all year long
He finally arrested Freak, and then he sent for me
To hang a fellow hangman from a fellow hangman's tree

It didn't take them long to try him in their court of law
He was guilty then of thinkin', a crime much worse than all
They sentenced him to die so his seed of thought can't spread
And infect the little children, that's what the law had said

So the hangin' day came 'round, and he walked up to the noose
I pulled the lever, but before he fell I cut him loose
They called it all conspiracy, and that I had to die
So to close our mouths and kill our minds they hung us side by side…..

And now we're two hangmen hangin' from a tree
That don't bother me at all…….
