Bibles or Bottles
I graduated high school,
Hitting the highway at full throttle,
Landing on a Dakota Prairie,
Where living was the Bible or the bottle.
Cub Scouts burnt the wild hemp fields,
Earning patches and a troop Award…
Meanwhile fat girls in black framed glasses,
Ratted their hair and served the lord.
Harboring rebellious dreams;
My mind set in Kerouac mode…
I traded the Baptists for Bourbon,
Waved off Jesus and hit the road.
