 Our Preferred Blend

"She is
-I mean in real life."  he said
the honor of her beauty, something 
to defend

draw back your wallet pic, son
you won't be home anytime soon 

habitually a man doesn't draw back
and I never apologize for that 
risks I took - consequences be damned

I always feel 
and am never shook

my brother is in a wilderness 
a place I have been
home would be nice
and so are warm friends
but the brotherhood of oil is thicker than all of 

muscle and steel nothing soft in this black land
fuel and blood we build with our hands
our lives shortened and saturated by our preferred nicotine blend
