The Starry Eyed Rat

Here's a sing-songy piece.  One of these days I'm gonna learn guitar!

The Starry Eyed Rat

Didn't smile at all today
The crescent moon was on its side
So I took a hint
And cracked a slant
But it never justified

I hid behind the dumpsters
And took the mailman on a ride
I said where's my mail
You son-of-a-gun
'Cause my mama didn't write

Fell right down that hole I dug
Like a chocolate water slide
Hit the wall
And hit rock bottom
Wound up covered up in pride

I came to in an alley
Not a soul was at my side
Except a rat
With starry eyes
"In me you must confide."

Spilled my guts to that stinker
And we rode in the tide
Looked around
And realized
I came through the other side
