Touch the little bugs in the garden
and they will roll into tight balls.
The possum plays dead to the world,
and the turtle hides inside his shell.
And the man? Somebody is
in need of help, but he sits
there daring you to help,
a tough guy, inmate, con–
you name it.
His Mama’s baby boy. But he
don’t need no help. Just sits
there indifferent, on his bunk.
Tough guy. All alone
in the crowded dorm. His
Mama’s baby boy. Tough
turtle doing troubled time.
