When ma turned herself in, all she’d say was “sombitch had it coming.” Later that same day, they found Maynard’s body all busted up with his pecker hacked off. Sheriff said some rival moonshiners done it.
My ma cried when she heard about Maynard. After that, she told Sheriff Jackson my pa wasn’t no ‘shiner, just a jealous, mean, drunk, sombitch. Ma ain’t said nothin’ since.
