Gritty Business
by Betty Jo Tucker

“I’ll avenge my father,” teenage Mattie vowed.

And in face of danger she never cowed.

She wanted a gunman to help her find

the dastardly killer she had in mind. 


Marshal Cogburn, reluctant and wary,

could not refuse Mattie’s stubborn query.

As the two set out across treacherous land

they’re joined by a lawman, who lends a hand.


Pity the villains in the film TRUE GRIT.

But not the viewers, who are in for a hit.

Thanks to Coen brothers Ethan and Joel

for a special gift during this Noel.


(Released by Paramount Pictures and rated “PG-13” for some intense sequences of western violence including disturbing images.)
