walkin’ ’round Walmart…

he walked into Walmart at three in the mornin’…lookin’ for nothin’ inparticular…just walkin’ the aisles…past different flavored Doritos…blow-up beds…camping gear…mixing bowls…just walked…

spent time lookin’ at electronic equipment…different types of cellphones…radios…computers…played on the keyboards awhile…no-one asked if they could help him…different types of video games caught his eye…

went over to the sporting goods section…footballs…basketballs…bats…gloves…he remembered his baseball playin’ days…how he was a catcher…called the pitches…signaled out to the mound…he thought he was somethin’…thought he was somethin’…could hit the ball too…a real american…

saw bullets lined up on shelves…locked away…only opened with a key…all kinds…silver colored ones…brass…real pretty…thought ’bout swipin’ a pack or two…thought ’bout it…

looked at shirts with pictures of his favorite wrestlers on ’em…saw others that were plain…next to packages of underwear…hadn’t done laundry in a few days…a week or two…

was three in the mornin…just walkin’ ’round Walmart…
