Bad Choices


In Nashville, Mississippi,

not far from the Rio Grande,

there lived a French Canadian trapper

named Hedrick Eckelmann.


He wrote a short novella

about the Second World War.

It ran ten-thousand pages;

he called it Less Is More.


He married a gal named Betty Sue,

who gave him two fine sons,

but she died a virgin at 44

cleaning one of his guns.


Terribly devastated,

he remarried within a week,

and lived happily ever after

until he choked on a steak


right outside of Nashville

in the heart of the Lone Star State,

right across the river from Canada.

Damn, he could’ve had a V-8.
