        in tattoos — no, you can’t quit halfway! (though I did seriously consider it –!) but in wars, oh, heck yes. Reminds me of George Carlin’s bit on staying in Vietnam – “Pull out? Doesn’t sound manly to me, Bill. I say leave it in there and get the job done!”

        maybe you can quit
        for once swallow your pride
        admit we were wrong

            the world down with us
            everyone in the gutter –
            slowly we’re drowning

                      with a local girl
                      her hand on the radio
                      and then felt the heat

                      I sent Rev. Ike my dollar and got a prayer cloth in the mail. 1974. I couldn’t resist my curiosity. It worked.
