Little Brown Jugs

Little Brown Jugs,
Little Brown Jugs,
What so mysteriously is hiding you
        from me?
Is it a comedian's mask grinning
        nonchalantly so as to not arouse suspicion?
Or s it a lover's valentine turned
        green with envy?
Could it be a spinder with outstreched
        legs to hid your secret,
Or is it a ragin river fed by its
        branches, rushing onward to the sea?
Little Brown Jugs, what's hiding
        you from me?
Little Brown Jugs, let me see you!
