Misty Dawn

 BROKEN COMPASS   

 

Misty Dawn
 

my main squeezin’ lady’s
such a saxy little girl
she sets the bottle spinnin’
and dances for the world
of droolin’ men

she draws on seventeen
hits a five card twenty-one
shrieks above the breathless crowd
let’s spend it ‘til it’s gone
then try for more

she smiles at me and winks
quickly turns and walks away
comes crying in the morning
makes love to me all day
then paints her face

she says, first strike capability
in love and war’s the same
intimidate the mongers
‘til the puppets cut their strings
don’t blow it off

Denton, Texas ‘84
