First Poem I Ever Memorized

Walked into a restroom in a run down truck stop in Florida when I was 10 years old and saw this written on the wall in black ink:

"Here I sit with a broken heart
took 14 pills and my truck won't start"

On the way back north we stopped in the same truck stop again and when I went to the restroom I saw just below in red ink"

"If those pills were worth a fuck
you'd get out and push that truck"

I'm 63 now and still remember like it was yesterday.
