Big And Little Kings

A man with a gun and a bullet proof vest.

Ain’t no effing hero.

Could be mothershootin’ zero.

Nope. He ain’t no hero.

A guy with a hose and an oxygen tank.

Ain’t a goddamn hero.

Without coin he ain’t even here no.

A gang member ain’t no hero.

A woman with a mask and a stethoscope.

That woman is no hero.

She’s working the job she chose and trained to do.

She’s paid damn well and mistakes are on you.

She’s doing exactly what she wants to do.

That woman ain’t no hero.

There’s a guy lost his house, his job, his life.

Whistleblowing loser even lost his wife.

Everything because he wrongly assumed right.

He don’t feel heroic but he is alright.

A momma wakes her baby who’s been up all night.

Her baby fights a fever momma’s broke it right.

A world she fights alone and she’ll be alright.

Because she’s a hero each and every night.

She doesn’t give a thought to her heroic plight.

If you ask, she ain’t no hero.

Much of what I write will be quite understandable to insane folks.

The rest will be, uh, less understandable...
