AHO!  POP-POP!

WE’RE OFF THE DAYSHIFT NOW AND IT’S NIGHTS OF SEX AND DAYS OF SUCKING SUGAR. I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT MY FRIEND THIS PLACE IS A PARADISE. A SHANGRI-LA. A DON’T-MIND-IF-I-DO.
YOUR LIBERAL RADIO LIED.  AUSTIN AIN’T THE NEW BROOKLYN.
BUT IT SURE AS SHIT BEATS PHILLY WIT A BIKE CHAIN!
MAYBE YOU’D RATHER BE BACK IN HOSTILE CITY HEH? OR HOW ABOUT OMA? MAYBE YOU’D LIKE ANOTHER STAB WORKING ON THE RIGS?
I DIDN’T THINK SO.
LISTEN CUZ THE LAST 30DAYS WE SPENT ON THE DAYSHIFT WERE A FUCKING BREEZE COMPARED TO WORKING FOR SHITHOUSE AND SWEETITS IN THE YARD THAT HATEFUL AUTUMN WE SPENT IN THAT SCUMFUCK OILTOWN.
BESIDES, ITS’ ALL OVER NOW.
AHO.
INDEED ANOTHER TEMPJOB, DAYSHIFT, SIDEHUSTLE, MONEYSCRAPE IS BEHIND US.  YOU KNOW THE DEAL. WE MADE IT AND WE MADE IT THROUGH.  WE’RE STILL CLICKING VICTORY, DEFEATS TOO, ALTHOUGH THEY ROLL ON THROUGH AND WE’LL HAVE SOME MORE DAYS HERE.  THE DAYSHIFT-IT KEEPS US ALIVE BUT IT FEELS LIKE DEATH.
BUT LISTEN CUZ STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN TO A MAN. HE GETS DEPRESSED. THE TIME GETS LONG BUT IT FLIES BY QUICKLY. HE’S ON HIS OWN RADAR AND NO ONE CALLS.
STRANGER STILL, THE SAMSKARA, WHEN A MAN OUTLASTS HIS DEMONS BUT HE DON’T EVEN KNOW IT AND HE’S ENSLAVED BY HIS OWN SELF.
SO YOU GOT THEM LATE NIGHT RADIO BLUES, HEH?  YOU SHOULD VIEW YOUR RECENT UNEMPLOYMENT AS AN OPPORTUNITY, LIKE I DO.  AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET FAT&WASTED BY THE POOL WITH A TUNA MELT A CIGAR AND A DUMB BLONDE. BESIDES, WE’RE A COUPLA HAPLESS YANKEES LIVIN IN PARADISE COMPARED TO OUR BROTHERS&SISTERS OUT THERE ON THE ROW.  REMEMBER THAT.

WE’RE ALL JUST PILGRIMS BETWEEN TEMPLE&THE BAD ROAD.
