When playing Army or war,

I was always the bad guy,

My friends would be the good,

And I was always the Nazi,

For some reason I never understand the real score…


For the most part I did lose,

But at the time it was what I did choose,

I didn’t seem to know any better,

Could it be from my familial life,

From when they did of me abuse…


No matter, even though I let go all of that,

I still was a little pain in the a** brat,

I don’t know how my parents & friends put up with me,

With my parents we were in constant combat…


I’ve grown to be an adult with little self-confidence,

Though I try, I still find myself not having much sense,

But I still do fight hard to continue on,

Tis the only words I can use in my own defense…

PeeWee is but all full of dog's manure, he was the one that elected you to be the bad guy, I was chasing hillbillies girls at the time, too old to play hide and seek with me brothers.

I was just the opposite, I always played the good person type. Even in school play, I played the role of Mother Mary. I didn't choose the role, my teacher chose that for me and the others.

I think when we look back, good or bad, those were the really good clean fun days.

LOL!...I guess you just wanted to be bad in the plays , because you can't do that for real, 'cause you were and still are a good person!!

Enjoyed this greatly!!

But I still do fight hard, to continue on

Keep On, Keepin On, Brother!

PS: Ma says you were always the 'bad guy,' because old Brother Edvard always insisted on bein the 'good guy.' I never knew that, since I was always just runnin around in the woods.
