Loaded Gun in the Closet
- 36 Views
I got a loaded gun in the closet And another one in the dresser drawer Just in case the one in the closet didn't make a big enough hole. She had his breakfast ready every morning And his lunch in a box sitting there by the kitchen door. She'd make sure he had everything he needed And hug his neck and tell him how much she loved him And it was beautiful. You should have seen it. Then she'd make herself a pot of coffee, Just the way she liked it And sit down and enjoy the quiet of the house all alone, But, by two-o-clock or so every afternoon The quiet would start getting to her and she’d watch The clock until he came back home. And she understood just what he needed When he came home every evening Was a couple of beers and a couple of minutes To cuss about his day. So she'd fix him a nice hot supper While he ranted and raved about one thing or the other. And she never once told him what he was going on about Didn't add up to a thing. And she never touched that gun in the closet. It was his and it was there just because he wanted it to be. She didn't get out much, so she never knew just what it was That made him so afraid. Most women today would say she was a disgrace. Most men would say she wasn't much to look at. And they all would say she'd be a lot better off If she cared a little more about what they all think. She could have a life of her own if she had a little pride, Some silicone implants, and another man on the side. But she's got a loaded gun in the closet. And it's there anytime she wants it. And her one and only man knows it and That's why he put it there in the first place.
