Crayton Clay

with his good friend

wasn’t a drinker

didn’t use drugs

good at fixing things

Household necessities

car engines TV sets

Crayton wasn’t

chemically dependent

He was just a mug who

loved matches and

flammable liquids

You know a misfit

firebug

Crayton loved to see

the flames dance

Hell he’d shove

Lit matches down

your pants

what he didn’t burn

he’d take

loads of

barrel and crate

till one day

he had a heart attack

cops coming

running big as he was

The Devil said

It’ll be fun

Run fat boy run

did it and done

Crayton Clay wasn’t a chemical dependent

He wasn’t hooked on drugs

He was a friend of the

Devil who encouraged

him to be a misfit

thief firebug
