Part 8 - Pyrotechnics and Goliard Poets

Vesuvios - North BeachThings had continued to deteriorate at the club that night after the awning caught fire and although Harry and Nate managed to soak the blaze with pool water and extinguish it before it spread to the main structure, it had left a mark and lingering smell that wasn't going to be easy to explain. Harry had somehow convinced Nate to sit on the deck and continue to drink with him by arguing that everybody's holiday deserved a dose of pyrotechnics anyway and besides, what else were they going to do. They finished yet another gallon of beer before Harry stepped down the stairs to relieve himself and must have stumbled off to his truck because it was the last Nate saw of him. The next thing he knew he was back at the front desk, teetering on his stool and trying to focus on the spread of goliardic literature he had strewn across the counter.

"Walking into town on Sunday Morning 
saw your daddy sleeping naked in the yard
Saturday I'd seen him in a Mexiquita bar 
liquor in his eyes and dust around his heart

James Low - Mexiquita I climbed through the window 
so my momma wouldn't see
That I was all dressed up 
and you were waiting there for me
Cause even from her bed 
she seems to know just where I been.
So I came back to see you 
before you take another man.

Mexiquita don't you know you own me
Just like you owned my daddy come before
Your dust will fill my mouth 
if I go north or I go south

Or if I'm killing time at the bar

I was born in sickness a fever in my brain
My Momma was told I'd never see the driving rain.
But see that rain I did lord and it comes down mighty hard.
And now I've grown to see you wrap yourself around my heart"

Mexiquita don't you know you own me
Just like you owned my daddy come before
Your dust will fill my mouth if I go north or I go south

Or if I'm killing time at the bar"
