Henry’s Dueling Banjos Elegy For Dennis Weaver
Don’t know what happened,
did I do something to this guy?
This gasoline tanker that
stalks me on these desert
and mountain roads?
When I’m washing up at a gas station
the tractor is parked outside
by the gas pumps,
so I rush to my car
and get out of there
but he’s on my tail again,
my car overheating as we go up
the grade and he falls behind a little.
My car barely makes it
over the mountains,
he’s caught up with me again my god!
After what feels like years
of fear and sweat
we end up in an abandoned gravel pit.
I park my car on the edge of a cliff,
he aims his tanker directly at it,
he plunges over the cliff,
there’s a terrible crash at the bottom.
I jump for joy so high I hit my head on heaven.
