Big dick Richard he was blowing like a storm
He was out of breath and ideas in equal measure
Should have been kicking back some place warm
Living out a golden life of leisure
But wrong choices and dumb decisions
That shit it’ll catch up with you
And once it’s too late to implement revisions
Well there’s not a lot you can do
So our mate Ricky running out of puff
He bent over with hands on knees
Nobody had bought into his bluff
He was gasping as stupid as you please
Big dick he let his eyelids close
The darkness behind them was stained red
He could smell the stink on his clothes
And the last thing he ever said
Was a kind of indiscernible muttering
Underneath his own faltering breath
As his heart and will were stuttering
And he embraced his own slow death


from Dirt Songs, released March 8, 2017
