We Need A Hero!

The Scene. Yes, the scene…

Where have all the good HIM gone
And where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise Rucking team to carry all the coupons?
Isn’t there an AOQ upon the Gloomy Memphis street?
Late at night I write and revise
And dream of the Q that I need


We need a hero!
Sloshy’s holding out for a hero to walk through the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be smart
And he’s gotta make sure to modify

We need a hero!
Cujo’s holding out for a hero til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And assume all the risks
And give effort but modify


Somewhere after disclaiming
In my wildest Warm-O-Rama-ing
200 Curls just beyond our reach
A HIM reaching back for Sloshy
Racing around the Tigers and ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ on the Street
It’s gonna take a Superman to sweep Sloshy off his feet!

We need a hero!
To carry Cujo around the Campus Lights
Thirty-five pounds
And we can’t let him drop
Or we Shoulder Press twenty times!

We need a hero!
We’re holding out for a hero till the morning light
His hands must be sure
His shoulders like rocks
And He’s gotta Ruck for his life

We need a hero!
Avoiding all the cops til the morning light!

Up where the Startex Meets the Mary above
Out where Old Glory awaits for Sloshy
I could swear 50 more curls somewhere,
Await IC!
Through the wind, in the chill, or the rain
With no gloves in a flood
I can feel Sloshy’s weight like a fire in my bicep’s blood!

Eleven Heroes!
No FNG’s for the Barracks Ruck

Christ is so strong
And Christ is so wise
We need to be like Him in His delight

He is our Hero!
His righteousness displayed in the book of Proverbs
On May Manliness
And quit being such a _____

Bootheel’s a Beast now!
Beans and Worm were angry till the morning light
They got #milez before
CMU’s were a bore
And they hated the Q to the core!

Bruce was a hero!
He avoided cussing til Ugly Mug’s light
The coffee was black
The coffee was strong
And the CSAUP was fresh from the fight

We need a hero!
One who will remember announcements in time!
