The Briar Patch
by Arthur Parten
and does it mean...
So the story goes that a hunter walks back into camp from a long day and his coat is torn all to hell while he's smiling an off-kilter grin because he knows he's going to catch shit for being beaten into submission by a lowly forest animal and he sits down by the fire and starts picking thorns from his coat and pants and somehow his hair
We were starting to get worried say the others as he nods his head already prepared for the needling on top of the thorn pricks The briar patch by the pine trees can really do a number on you Yeah it looks like you're pretty torn up I must look like I've been through a meat grinder That's about it
So what'll you do this afternoon Oh I'm gonna head back over to the briar patch comes the reply as he turns to the one closest to him You wanna give it a shot with me?
And that's where the story ends.
