I knew my ex was calling me
About the money for housekeeping
And child support. I was home free
And so decided not to answer.
I knew my daughter had a cancer
But what was I supposed to do;
And so I bid the two adieu.
It happened just as I was crossing,
Against the light, but running hard . . .
Next thing I knew my prison guard
Had picked me up and was embossing
The circle number of my hell
Where Perry voters go to dwell.
