Billy Rock

They called him Billy rock.
No one knew his past.
Something went wrong upstairs,
long ago.
Some say his mind
is now just a shell.
Always cloudy and unclear.

Something happens
to some military active duty
around the 15 year mark.

Daily his mind
reverts back to childhood.
His greatest joy now
is watching old smoky and the Bandit movies.

Billy is always happy
because he’s unaware of his condition.
To him
life is just fine.

He’s unaware
of the strife at his home,
his family responsibility and his children.

Many wonder
if he will make it
to his twenty year retirement mark.
All should
mark this path well.
And be determined
never to follow it.
