I can’t come to work today
I left my belt at home
Over 90 miles away
My pants really aren’t that loose
Until I try and walk around all day
Without a cinchable strap
Choked ’round my waist
Sagging’s a problem
But mostly it’s a comfort thing
Also, I forgot to comb my beard
Before leaving the trailer this morning
And we all know what a fucking disaster
An untamed beard can be.
