Poop

Chase graduated from prep school
Joy never thought he was cool
Because he went to pay union dues
In a small place machining screw
Chase knew he’d create a brand
Punching holes in loaded land
Then invested every bit of his stock
Trading goods around the clock

Take it easy in the can
Worms crawl out
Watch the plan
Don’t become an also ran
Take lonesome poop
Downplay the scoop

Joy didn’t want to tie the knot
With risks for an empty pot
Chase focused on the job at hand
Hunting success without a band
He had few dollars to work with
Picking chances targeting fifths
Showing his rolls when it got too loud
Singing tunes to a laid-back crowd

Take it easy in the can
Worms crawl out
Watch the plan
Don’t become an also ran
Take lonesome poop
Downplay the scoop

Chase got in touch with email
Told her his plan didn’t fail
That he belonged to a special club
Most would never call a flub
Joy replied he was full of BS
Not the type that does impress
So, he gave her a ten-year grant
For tuition to study ants

Take it easy in the can
Worms crawl out
Watch the plan
Don’t become an also ran
Take lonesome poop
Downplay the scoop

Passionate stories did get told
Of odd people in a rocking fold
Living a life never understood
By teachers, preachers and sworn hoods
Joy started spinning all around
Chase found friends in well-lit towns
Now one working laughing at clowns
Gets drunk on books, caps and gowns

Now one working laughing at clowns
Gets drunk on books, caps and gowns
Take lonesome poop
Downplay the scoop
