Default Readin' Buke's "Ham on Rye"

talkin' 'bout his father
and his father's anger

rememberin' my father
and his anger

like the time my brother and I
got expelled from boarding school
for fightin' in self defense

he picked us up in his station wagon
me in the front seat
brother in the back

drove to a nearby parking lot

lookin' straight ahead
he started yellin'
punctuatin' his points
by backhandin' the left side
of my jaw

(just my luck
he was a right hander)

after half an hour or so
started to feel a molar loosen
as I continued to swallow blood

sure glad my seat belt was on

without it I could have been
seriously injured
