I forgot how it ended.

 

I forgot what happened to Jack’s character
A whisky drinkin’,
football helmet wearin’ ,
conspiracy believen’
son
of
a
gun.

 

I forgot that the man
of the
commune
was more
Corrupt
than the man with a
Nuclear
family.

 

I forgot the open road,
The suede fringe
Swinging
in mountain air
Desert air
City air.

 

I forgot the flag displayed
on the back of a man
who did not fit
the beliefs of those who worshipped it.

 

I forgot the dissatisfaction,
the isolation,
The brotherhood and love.
Love for a country that did not love them
A quest that started with the intent of a good time
That ended with no time left at all.

 

I remember how it ended.
