Animal Wrongs

Saturday, January 1st, 1994

Painted smiles and canned laughter
just a happy shell
cherry cordial to the last
the last straw
the straw that broke the camel’s back
The camel’s pain is what I feel
I am lost in my turtle shell
Moving slowly, growing older
but what about wiser?
Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of my soul?
Just a scaredy cat
Blind as a bat
I’ve been fished in
Just spread eagle
Over your pelican briefs
So I bury my head in the sand
Bear in mind, cub in hand
And I see their crocodile tears
Take flight and avoid the dog fight
It’s just spit in the wind, boys
Drive your cattle around town
I want to go society tipping
Moo, everyone, I’ll have your hide
