Shittin' in a Hole 

Itís been a long day of hiking
and i ain't seen a soul
that bean burrito is a-knocking
and i gotta dig a hole
so i climb up to a hilltop
and find a little rock
the view goes on forever
it's the perfect place to squat

cause out in the field
it really feeds my soul
there's no place i'd rather be
than shittin' in a hole
i got no need
for a dirty toilet bowl
there's no place i'd rather be
than shittin' in a hole

you can keep your nasty bathroom
after some stranger's tush
i don't need to wipe no seat down
when i'm going in the bush
cause out here in the forest
i won't get no diseases
when i expose my bottom
all i feel is breezes

first i leave the trail
about forty meters
i find a tree that's fragrant
like hickory or cedar
i make sure there's no insects
then i dig a little trench
i bend my knees and balance
maybe hold on to a branch

afterwards i stand up
and look down to check my work
i see a handsome effort
laying down there in the dirt
itís a secret art museum
where the creative juices flow
itís a tiny abstract sculpture
at the postmodern show
