The rope on the Mantel Place
Even the wisest Southern Gentleman I even knew was in his day both good and a FOOL.
A very high Degree Mason, an Architect and even by hand alone home builder.
My Grandfather, yet as a young child I was shown his piece of the lynching rope, still on the mantel of a very real working fireplace, and told the sad story with pride in his eyes by my Father.
Yes, both were good Men, Both Southern Baptist every Sunday.
Honest Hard Working and very Damn Fools that a young child come see and see through like window glass that was born thousands of years too old.
