A Truckers Lament



There is something in my truck that eats my socks and pens.

I don’t know what it is, but its appetite never ends.

It waits for me to turn my head

Or when I leave my truck

Then it slithers from its lair and starts to run amuck

It eats my socks and various pens

It eats my receipts and a sunglasses lens

It only eats the things I need

The things I must rely

The things that are not on sale

And are expensive to re-buy.

The socks seem to be its favorite dish

Even with their funky smell

Where the little bastards hide

There is no way to tell

I thought I saw them once

From the corner of my eye

But the little Sum Bitches are quick

And always on the sly

I think they open my windows whilst I am away

And let in blood thirsty mosquitoes and the occasional fly

They turn up my radio and the heat, under the summer sky

I can’t find a single freaking AA battery looking low and high

I will catch one of those bastards, sure as hell

If I follow the smell of dirty socks, I cannot fail.

I’ve started wearing sandals now to thwart their evil lust

But now they’re after my toe-nail clippers

Boy can those pricks adjust!
