Knucklehead

Kevin the Klutz
had oversized nuts
and all of his peers
had him pegged as a putz

he loved to drink Jack
both the green and the black
like grease in the gears
it helped him stay slack

he constantly failed
and always got bailed
but over the years
stability staled

till he was let go
beginning the flow
of piteous tears
when he shot his own toe.

A good poem, but am confused about the word "baled". Was he wrapped into a bundle like a bale of hay or "bailed" as in bailed out.
Regardless, I enjoyed the poem.

haha oh that was fun
Very well spun
Now with nine toes
Those with a foot fetish he could cause woes
