Where the Dirty Old Hermit Lives

I don't think it's true that he screams,
Nor that he keeps a loaded gun.
He's not as dirty as he seems.
He's unkempt. He lives in the sun.

His "cabin" is a double-wide
Abandoned before he found it.
He camps out there, untroubled by
Whose property rights surround it.

He likes being near the train tracks.
He spends hours at that little pond.
If you wave at him, he'll wave back,
Probably just a bit too long.

One passerby heard him lament,
"Love should be put into action!"
He swears his actual comment
Was, "No love is an infraction."
