Maggie Bell - Suicide Sal
'The Story of Suicide Sal' by Bonnie Parker
Six days before turning 16, Bonnie married high school classmate Roy Thornton. The marriage disintegrated within months, and Bonnie never again saw her husband after he was imprisoned for robbery in Soon after, Bonnie met Clyde, and although the pair fell in love, she never divorced Thornton. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow in a photograph from the early s. Library of Congress.
Bonnie Elizabeth Parker was just a year—old nobody when she crossed paths with year-old Clyde Champion Barrow in Texas on a January day in The two would become an explosive pair, destined to go down in history for all the wrong reasons. And it was love at first sight. Bonnie had been married since the age of 16 to an abusive jailbird, Roy Thornton. Clyde was single. Their love affair suffered a delay when Clyde got put in jail just two months after they met. She wrote him letters, visited him and even smuggled him a gun so he could break out.
Bonnie Parker Poems
We each of us have a good "alibi" For being down here in the "joint;" But few of them really are justified If you get right down to the point. You've heard of a woman's glory Being spent on a "downright cur," Still you can't always judge the story As true, being told by her. As long as I've stayed on this "island," And heard "confidence tales" from each "gal," Only one seemed interesting and truthful The story of "Suicide Sal. Then I left my old home for the city To play in its mad dizzy whirl, Not knowing how little pity It holds for a country girl. There I fell for "the line" of a "henchman," A "professional killer" from "Chi;" I couldn't help loving him madly; For him even now I would die. One year we were desperately happy; Our "ill gotten gains" we spent free; I was taught the ways of the "underworld;" Jack was just like a "god" to me.
