Vox Gets Into Treble: “The Trail’s End”

Vox is in some serious trouble. Just to see Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s On The Run TourVox held up some banks, and now lives in fear of the long arm of the law. Today, Bey and Jay are on top of the world, but let’s not forget that it all started with a remake of a 2Pac song about outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Their story may be a canonized part of the American identity, but what’s less well known is that Parker was an accomplished creative writer.

You’ve read the story of Jesse James
of how he lived and died.
If you’re still in need;
of something to read,
here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde.

Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang
I’m sure you all have read.
how they rob and steal;
and those who squeal,
are usually found dying or dead.

The rest of “The Trail’s End” can be found here. While reading it, here’s a playlist to give life to their tragic trajectory.
