i'll be the old man (revisited)

I'll be the old man with the ancient pickup
who drives into town once every two weeks
to pick up my mail, have a beer at The Stickup
and maybe another to make up for the leaks,

then retreat to my trailer out on the border
of the county line dead on the creek,
under the stars that lend law and order
of the sort an old man like me seeks.
