Mason Jar

This one is old and appears to have been meant to be a song.  I don’t remember anything more.

Mason Jar

*

Billy was the kind of man that reason couldn’t reach

Billy was the kind that all the schools could never teach

And he spent his time asking ‘why’ but no one ever cared

a partner full of combat but no one ever dared

so he shut his mouth and shut his mind

and got into the car

one day he put his life away

into a Mason Jar

*

He sat alone with his disease

sitting at the bar

He told me sadly of his life

in its Mason Jar

*

Every night he turned out the lights

so the neighbors couldn’t see

Mostly he talked to himself

But he sometimes talked to me

*

He sat alone with his disease

sitting at the bar

He told me sadly of his life

in its Mason Jar

*
