Friday Noir: There Is No Courage, Only Fear

Courage. I don’t know what that is.

It’s probably sticking your neck where it don’t belong.

You don’t live long by doing that.

Swimmin’ in dirty water ain’t good.

Nope, you live long by having a good healthy fear of dying.

Especially in this racket.

If you want to end up dead, sure, go ahead pretend you have courage.

Courage, to me, is only found at the bottom of a bottle or behind my .45.

It ain’t a trait, it’s a downfall.

Yeah, have that healthy fear.

That’ll keep you kicking around this big blue marble a lot longer.

Well that…and a .45.
