Steven climbed the water tower,
Behind the abandoned 7-11,
Every rusty rung on the ladder
Found him one foot closer to heaven.
Steven finally reached the top,
Thinking he touched the moon...
Whose gravity betrayed him;
He fell to his death too soon.
The water tower's still standing,
Like a giant bicycle horn;
The tribute to Steven's courage,
A reminder he was born.
Steven's evangelical church,
Preached his spirit will never leave us,
Parishioners commuting along I-5
See the horn and honk for Jesus.
