If you are rock fan? Check out this song called: Going postal

Going Postal: Sometimes a great song comes from personal experience. I am not proud of most my songs I have written. This particular song I am.
Background: It was March of 2002 I tried to work for the U.S Post Office. Now I was one of those people who use to make fun of the Post Office. You ever heard of the expression: Walk a mile in my shoes? To make a really long story short: Being a mail carrier is really, really hard work. I quit right on the spot. The moral of the story: I will never criticize or satirize Postal Workers again.
Lyrics: I tried to convey my 2-week experience with the Post Office in couplets. Of course it was exaggerated fiction.
The sound: The songs I used for influence was Alice Coopers 1971 song: Ballad of Dwight Fly & Ballad of a thin man by Bob Dylan 1965.
This song appears on the 2009 album: Star, spangle, Bummer. Benedict Arnold & the Traitors. Check it out.
