“I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.”
On September 8, 1974, Eric Clapton topped the Billboard music charts with his hit single, “I Shot the Sheriff.” This remake of a reggae favorite by Bob Marley somehow struck a nerve with listeners. CTRL-click here (or below) to view and listen to this song.
Today, our Meme Express prompt is this:
What if you were the sheriff?
Feel free to use the lyrics and images . . . or not. You be the sheriff today, at least for your blog post. Use your imagination.
If you wore the sheriff's star, how might things be different?
Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)
Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
