This story unfolds at the wake of a homeless veteran.


Shifty ain’t got time
for your parables or prescriptions
he's done two tours in Afghanistan.
If you make him promise
he'll take you down with him.
Don't even talk about that
time he spent in jail.
This is where I say something.
If I had something to say.
Cold Feet? More like Big Feet.
Hey Shifty, let me get a ride man.
Oh Shifty, you’re looking good today
but the mileage on you is taking you away.
He wondered what would Frank Sinatra do?
I told him he'd get a horn section.
He said he felt like he had a c- section
and took off running.
I believe we gotta put him in the ground
but that aint no reason
for ya'll to put him down.
