Captured V-1 buzz bomb outside court house/city hall/county seat etc. building
in Greencastle, Indiana (halfway between Indianapolis, and Illinois)
Spoils of war rendered into veterans memorial
as is meet

The only other one, on display, in America, is at The Smithsonian Institute

when I was 23, in 1978, me and my posse were gonna steal this
by blowing up a barn
on the edge of town
with dynamite
as a diversion
for the two cops there are in that town
(Greencastle is like Mayberry
one sheriff and a deputy that only is allowed one bullet
and he can't have it IN the pistol
it has to be kept in his shirt pocket Laughing
John Dillinger robbed the Greencastle bank on oct 23rd, 1933
just as a joke
and they got 75,000 dollars
no shots were fired
and no alarms went off
only one incident occured during the robbery
a guy was walking into the bank, just as Dillinger and his gang were leaving
and one gangmember slapped him in the face
because he was reaching into his coat pocket for a bank slip, or check, or something)
Laughing
and then we were gonna cut the bolts on the cement V
and load it onto the back of a semi
and hide it in my grandpa's barn
in Bainbridge, Indiana-9 miles away

but we all got drunk that day
and never did it Crying or Very sad

it was all grey, as i remember, back then
looked like it had its original nazi paint job

that's a newer paint job, now
still authentic
they DID sometimes paint planes with green or grey on top
and sky blue on the belly
but that's fairly new, now
I think back then it was all grey

also
now that i'm remembering the details
it was too wide to put into an enclosed semi
we were gonna swing it down onto a flatbed
with a small crane
in the dead of night
cover it with a tarp
as the entire population of town
especially andy and barney
would be investigating the flaming nuclear barn
on the other side of town from where we were gonna head out to my
grandpa's barn, on his farm, in Bainbridge
on dirty back gravel roads
between corn fields
we'da probably had it snug in the barn before anyone noticed it was gone
but, anyway
no one can follow you
even in the daytime
let alone on a pitch black moonless overcast foggy night
in 14 foot high corn fields

because you can fish-tail and throw up so much dense gravel dust
especially pulling a trailer
(utterly utterly blinding anyone behind you)
then suddenly turn off a side road
and anyone following, overshoots the side road
before he notices the dust has cleared
and has to go back
and try and find the road you turned off on
and, each time that happens
you gain more and more ground

we were gonna cover it in hay
and only uncover it once in a while
when we just looked at it forever

that's all we wanted it for
just to have it --own it
and look at it whenever we wanted to
and maybe try and get it working, some day
and then take turns flying it around

someday, since it was my plan
I was going to have it parked in my garage
or built inside my den
if i ever got a house Smile

i'm still convinced i coulda made that into a sorta one-man
flying jet motorcycle

maybe woulda replaced the explosive for extra fuel
maybe woulda thought of that
but there's certainly no guarantee Laughing

i'm SURE we coulda pulled off the heist
my grandpa never went in there anymore
in that barn
because he'd died five or six years earlier Laughing


****

i remember
one day i walked into the all-purpose government office building there
to ask someone about the buzzy bomb
and there was an old guy behind a table
with a bunch of pencils
in pencil holders
in front of him
and i said: "hey, can you tell me anything about the buzz bomb?"

"what'n the HAIL buzz bomb--wot buzz bomb?!!"

"huh?...uh...that buzz bomb right out there on the lawn!-
what OTHER buzz bombs were you thinking i'd be asking about?"

and he yells: "dammit i'm blind! i don't know anything about no GOT
damned fuzz bomb! People alla time coming in here askin all kindza damn fool questions!" Evil or Very Mad

turns out i was in the veterans affairs office
or right in front of that particular office door, in the main entrance room Embarassed Rolling Eyes Confused
major boner, on my part Mad Laughing
too much of a dummass to realize
he was a blind veteran
traditionally selling pencils
like poppies
to suppliment his meagre WWI pension, or whatever, no doubt
he LIVED there, in that town
probably for eighty five frikkin years
and no one had ever told him there was a buzz bomb outside Rolling Eyes

when we rode them around

I don't think they'd invented wine coolers yet Laughing Cool
