I've been hiding incognito, since 1989,
Since the night I tied one on, a quart of Boone's Farm wine,
Incoherent, stupored state, a slash with butcher knife,
In a fleeting, drunken second, forever changed my life,
Been on the run for ten plus years, first went to Minnesota,
A foreign country was my goal, tried Bismark, North Dakota,
I couldn't stand the culture shock, slipped back to the U.S.,
I shaved my head and eyebrows too, so's not to be conspicuous,
I watched my back-side day and night, I lived a hermit's life,
I cried myself to sleep each night, with picture of my wife,
I phoned collect one summer day, "It's Mike, I love you dear."
The only problem, had changed my name, twas Tim she knew, I fear,
I haven't heard her voice since then, since yelled,
"You dirty pervert!"
Reminded me of days gone bye, when first with her did flirt,
So now I roam big city streets, still from the Feds I run,
I fugitive I'll ever be, my troubles never done,
My live has been a living hell, since sobered up and saw,
Remains of mattress tag cut off, under penalty of law.

Mike/Tim-
Incognito, hell !  
You just blew your cover.  
I'd recognize that sense of humor
from a mile away !
LOL !

All that from a quart of Boone's Farm??? Sheesh...I'd hate to think what a nice golden bottle of Mt. Gay Rum would get you into! I loved the part about crying yourself to sleep each night with picture of your wife! That could have been read to mean self inflicted torture! This was good for a morning's giggle, Mike. Tim. Tyke? Mim? Anyway, thanks fer th' grin.

Sheesh Mike, how dumb can ya be?  That mattress's family might still be around, and your giving our cover away.  Get back under the blanket and stuff a pillow in your mouth.

On behalf of Mike, thx for the comments, but in his defense, it really was a matter of self-defense, the mattress attacked first.

And we are not in Kansas anymore.

Hope you don't mind if I print this one out and share it with the mattress industry. It is hilarious! We have a bedding factory and this question often comes up. It's the retailer who can not cut the tag off. The consumer can do anything he pleases with the tag. But a little warning if you're going to buy a mattress, if the law tag is yellow, you got a mattress that was used and just recovered. Always buy a mattress with a white tag.
