Eddie had a secret he kept from us for years
Remember Donna, the blind chick who lived
Down near Sloppy Joe’s?
Banged her once, he said one day
This was years back
Long before I hung out with you reprobates
I was a trusted guy
She trusted me
When we made love
It was like battling my way through a rose garden
She wasn’t well plucked
But boy! Did she trust me well!
This is the first time I have told anyone that, he said.
I tried to imagine what it would be like
Banging a blind girl and I thought
I would be rather repulsed by the attitude of being
In the wrong for taking advantage of a poor thing
But it would be a likelihood that it would be seen as that
So Eddie was a brave man in the face of that.
