How Long Does it Take to Get from Whisky to Hope?

When I tell people where I’m from
from Whisky town in Arkansas
they sometimes ask
“Is Whisky close to Hope?”

And I’m so proud
to be from close
to Clinton’s home
I say:

“It’s sort of, kind of, pretty close
about an hour driven fast
unless you take
the longer way
avoiding all the cops
or need to stop
in Sparkman
like I did.

And honestly I’m still not sure,
’cause I got drunk in Whisky
stoned in Sparkman
fell asleep
then woke
still drunk
in Hope.

In other words
it all depends
on how you choose
to go.”
