Army Mom’s Safe Haven

MICHAEL CASEY

ON WHAT THE ARMY DOES WITH HEADS

Most Americans like kids
GIs is no exception
They likes to play with kids
Walking up to them
Pattin' them on the head
Hey ya cute lit fucker
Now,
If you see a little bald-headed kid
Don't do that.
Don't go pattin' him on the head
this kid's Buddhist
An' it's against his religion
You do that
an' to them
to these people here,
You've fucked with the kid's head
An' no one can
convince that kid's mama
You didn't do it on purpose.
