“Man This Is Getting Scary, Iâ??m Gonna Shoot Somebody!”

Monday night was the false alarm, what with the late night phone call and the frantic on-line search, and the empty handedness at the end of it all, sad faces, a few tears, a lot of blaming and shaming. But, you know, these things have a way of working themselves out. So, what I’m telling you is, it’s here:

Trapped in the Closet (Chapter 3 of 5)
by
Robert Kelly

Well here we are the 4 of us in total shock
Me and her, I close my mouth, swallow spit (gulp)
Cause Iâ??m thinking to myself, “This is some deep shit!”
Then I said, “So you gonna tell me heâ??s the one you been talking to?”
He says, “Yes.” I says, “No.” He says, “Yes.” I says, “No.” He says, “Itâ??s the truth”
I yell, “All of y’all are all crazy let me up out this door
Because this is way more than I bargain for”
And then she says, “Wait, Iâ??m sure we can all fix this”
And then I said, “Iâ??m late cause I aint got a damn thing to do with this”
And then she said, “But wouldnâ??t you like to know just how it all began?”
Then I thought to myself and said, “Quick you got 3 minutes”
And then it got real quiet, I said, “Somebody start talking”
Then she said, “My God, Rufus, Iâ??ve got just one question
How could you do something like this? Iâ??m so hurt”
And he looked at her and said, “Bitch please, you got your nerve
With all your club hoppin, lying saying you were shopping
And now here you are in our home, and youâ??re calling me wrong?”
She said, “Okay, you busted me, and that much I agree
You caught me cheating, but this is a little extreme”
He said, “You are my wife sleepin behind my back
And now I come home and you got him in the closet, how extreme is that?”
She says, “But sheâ??s a he,” then he said, “Please, you canâ??t judge me”
She says, “Rufus this is crazy,” then I said, “Stop arguing!
I did not stay here to hear yall chew each other out
So get to the point or I swear Iâ??m out”
“Excuse me, please, but I think I can explain whatâ??s going on in here.
My name is Chuck and Iâ??ve been knowing Rufus bout a year
And err night creeping around with him has been a living hell
Sneaking in and out of hotels.” I said, “Brother, spare me the details”
Then Rufus said, “Chuck, please donâ??t say nothing else”
And then she screams, “Rufus, you son of a bitch!”
And he says, “Cathy go to hell”
I said, “I thought your name was Mary, thatâ??s what you said at the party
Man this is getting scary, Iâ??m gonna shoot somebody”
Then Rufus starts yelling and screaming saying, “Cathy this is all your fault”
She throws a pillow at him and says, “You was creepin too
The only difference is you didnâ??t get caught”
Chuck screamed out, “Weâ??re in love!” Cathy says, “Love my ass”
Rufus said they getting married, then I shoot one in the air
Then I say, “Not another one of you sonâ??s of bitches say a word
Cause all of this shit Iâ??m going through is unheard”
Grabbed my cellular, saying, “This is so wrong”
Called up my home and a man picks up the phone.
