Joey pulled himself to his feet
hauled his body back up the bank
and looked back down there.
Said "The water was not that deep
but I almost drowned there.
You can drown in a bathtub, so they say.

"Someone in class called me a loser
so I decided to skip the day.
I tried to look casual sneaking round the back
past the shotput, across the track
and to the gate beside the portables.
But a red tie and school grey slacks
doesn't blend in with the grass
as the teacher was changing class.

"He chased me halfway through the park
till I ran into the woods
and I'm very good in...the woods.
So I was an Indian, built a fire by the creek
and dried my eyes there."

There's a record body count this year.

Joey stepped up on a block of ice
put a rope around his neck
and fell asleep before he died.
