Ode to Billy Bob

(in response to the song Redneck Crazy the lyrics of which I finally listened to today)

 Afterward, they'll be one more angry young man
sitting in 6 by 8,
sent here by a woman; hardly a first for his clan.
Overwhelming  love changed into unwarranted hate
if reasons he can’t discover,
despite hours of thought
since blue boy pulled him from behind
 one of  Dogwood trees he’d planted for his  former lover.
Now his record will have another blot.
Wishing he’d thought before boozed induced plot came to mind.
