Here's the kid that took a shit in the urinel they picked on him and threw his books down in the hallway used to eat from the empty tray lunches gave him rides home from school kids told me I wasn't cool
yet who are they anyway folks said he went off in the Army
many years would pass having every reason to grasp where has he been
then I was a security guard
in a mentally insane facility I heard his name over the loud speaker now he was locked up for all eternity the great Jimmy Foley the talk of the town
a challenge to be free is a question of time
