Yellow Ribbon

Yellow ribbon in my hair.
Yellow ribbon tie with care.
Yellow ribbon ‘round my neck.
Yellow ribbon keep in check.

Too many choices,
Too many names,
Too many children,
Too many games.

Playing always laughing
Always teasing always
Fighting always wanting
Never satisfied.

Cowboy, G.I. Joe,
Star Wars Hero,
Do-Si-Do.

Too many choices,
Too many zits,
Too many Playboys,
Too many tits.

Groping always stumbling
Always reaching always
Yearning always missing
Never satisfied.

Yellow ribbon held in pray’r.
Yellow ribbon please beware.
Yellow ribbon ‘round the tree.
Yellow ribbon not for free.

Cowboy, G.I. Joe,
Star Wars Hero,
Do-Si-Do.

Too many choices,
Too many tricks,
Too many partners,
Too many pricks.

Hurting always flinching
Always punching always
Strangling always dreading
Never satisfied.

Agoraphobia: Fear of crowds.
Antlophobia: Fear of floods.
Siderophobia: Fear of stars.
Xenophobia: Fear of strangers.

Yellow ribbon over there.
Yellow ribbon make a square.

Erotophobia: Fear of sex.
Epistemophobia: Fear of knowledge.
Kenophobia: Fear of voids.
Sedatephobia: Fear of silence.

Yellow ribbon in midair.
Yellow ribbon make a pair.

Philophobia: Fear of love.
Mnemophobia: Fear of memories.
Atychiphobia: Fear of failure.
Xanthophobia: Fear of yellow.

Too many choices: Fear of yellow.
Too many lies: Fear of yellow.
Too many symbols: Fear of yellow.
Too many ties: Fear of yellow.

Twisting always snapping
Always fixing always
Failing always searching
Never satisfied.

Cowboy, G.I. Joe,
Star Wars Hero,
Do-Si-Do.

Yellow ribbon to recruit.
Yellow ribbon prostitute.
Yellow ribbon overstock.
Yellow ribbon aftershock.
