Nightstand’s Wheel

This pasty kid
Took the lid
From under the nightstand’s wheel

Nifty was this kid
Who took the lid
From the nightstand’s wheel

Guess who did?
The dirty deed
Of stealing the nightstand’s wheel

So he kneeled
Right before he felt
Remorse for what he did

A dire need
Was coursing through, so keen
But young and unseen

So he left
Looking back at the trenches
That once seemed
So God damn green
