Watching an old Sinatra movie,
Sterling Hayden, too,
I’ve seen it a bunch of times,
Psycho war vet,
Manly man cop,
Smart ass kid with a fragile mom.

It’s great, the plot involving an assassination,
Evil looking to be in control
Before good saves the day.
The vet loses his edge,
The sheriff makes a play,
The kid saves the day,
But it’s the mom he comes up large.

The acting is eh,
The timeline is off,
Things happen conveniently,
But for some reason I love this flick,
Black and white,
Overly dramatic.
