there were two of them and a dog
named Twerp they were driving
all the way to Oregon
the wife behind the wheel was fat
he was old drinking friendly
they picked me up
and talked about drugs and hunting
and hitchhiking i thought he looked
rather healthy for an alcoholic
he talked and said don't listen
i'm drunk
