A Coyote Tail [CLWC}

I have been a wily coyote for a very long time, well as long as I can remember anyway. I have suffered a lot of head trauma in my life so my memory is not so good anymore. I have often been accused of being accident prone but in my line of work injuries are to be expected.

You might wonder what it is that I do. I chase a road runner, a very fast road runner. I may have forgotten why I chase it, but I do. I do live in the southwest of the United States and there is not a whole lot of food to be had. I have never been successful in catching this road runner so I don’t even know what it might taste like. I have heard it tastes just like chicken, whatever that is.

I have been laughed at all of my life. Even when I fall off cliffs, or have anvils drop on my head I am laughed at. Thank God for the Acme Company and their low prices. I would not be able to keep up my
quest if I had to order stuff from Sears.

I saw a shrink for a while who wanted to put me on medication. He diagnosed me with Obsessive Compulsive Destruction Syndrome and he feared that it might lead to my destruction. I told him not to worry because God always resurrects me and draws the next chapter of my life.

You probably wonder if it hurts when I fall off cliffs or get crushed under heavy objects. The answer is only my pride gets hurt. Not even my ink gets smudged. At least a cloud of dust or smoke usually hides my appearance from others.

However there are days when I do despair and wonder why I have to always play the stupid one. The only thing I can think of is that the road runner must have connections. I mean, he even has a car named after him named the General Lee. Sadly, there is no coyote car.

Isn’t wily suppose to mean I should be cunning and skilled. So why does God mess with me so much. Am I in my own hell? What character was I in a previous cartoon? I have heard that if I am good and work hard that someday I may go to Disney Land and have a chance to chase around little mice and fat little pigs.

Until then I will keep chasing this road runner and keep wishing upon a star. They say it doesn’t make a difference who you are. I heard that from a little cricket just before I ate him. Hey, I am getting hungry out here. My stomach is growling, of course that could just be some bad ink.

Thanks Helen. I always kind of felt sorry for Wily. I would even try to imagine a better way for him to get the road runner. Sometimes my own life has played out where no matter how hard I tried it always seemed to backfire!

Yah, Wile E. Coyote will never catch that Meep meep bird. Most of the time he just thinks of innovative ways of comitting suicide...

You too, huh?

Saturday mornings were the best...

As long as we stay young at heart we'll be alright. Thanks for your story.

Wow! That was pure fun! You must have a great sense of humor...something that is rare in these days and times. It was just absolutely "cute" beyond measure.
Living in Boise I see. We almost moved there 2 yrs. ago. Went home to Yellowstone in Wyoming and decided to move back to good ole Louisiana. Hubby and I are more suited to the swamps I guess.
The wind/cold in Wyoming, we couldn't get used to.

We have those wily critters here too. Had 2 in my yard last year. We have some pretty woods areas here too.
Thanx for a very fun read! Enjoyed it immensely!!

Sadly, there is no coyote car.

FYI - There is a car named a Coyote.

Maybe driving one would help catch the road runner!

Thanks and I am glad you enjoyed! I enjoy humor and I really enjoy playing with words, puns, changing song lyrics, oxymoron, etc. I have been writing a lot of poetry lately and I am really enjoying it.

That is one cool car! I am sure Wily would love to put his paw to the metal!
