The Truck

For a little while
Sam lived in a tent
about halfway between the tree and the crick
just sorta camped there all spring,
eating from a campfire,
and drinking that cold crick water.
Said, "Wish them elves could see me now."

Along about June third,
Sam went to a little country store
to stock up. That's where he saw the truck.
It used to be blue,
and some of it still was.
Paid that boy a hundred and fifty dollars
and drove it home,
while Billy had a good laugh
with old man Morton,
but Sam knew what he was doing.
Says, "the driveway cost more'n the
damn truck."
