                For C.E.B.

One thing I’ve  learned is
that you don’t complain.
You’ll never win,
so you don’t complain.
They were going to charge
me with assaulting an officer.
Yeah, I hit his elbow,
real hard with my nose.
But whatever you do,
you don’t complain.
It’s their word against
yours, so you don’t complain
