The Boy Scouts Of America
Like a birthday card / from a previous year, / the weather in Chayco / is sparkling and clear. / The girl lies in bed, / the boy sits in the yard. / He wants to talk sleep / but he has to keep guard. /
She stirs from her sleep / and she calls for a beer; / he knows there are none / and pretends not to hear. / She hears his breath / like she's heard it before. / She cuddles her sheets / as he slips out the door. /
God had derailed / the Lonestar train / that can take her away / from sadness and pain. / He acts like a saint / but the strain really shows; / The boy scouts of America / taught him all that he knows.
