Monster

jail as a home.

"The Joint"

The only joint my momma burned was on the rural route
She parked in old man Taylor's woods so she wouldn't be found out
Turned off her dome light and snuck off by herself
Crouched down beneath that window, fired it up and gave it hell

That hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that, the taps and stools and the tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned, burned

Just like someone flipped a switch, dad started coming home
No more eating late cold suppers with that tavern gone
I had my suspicions, til one night when we said Grace
Dad said, "forgive us our transgressions", that smile lit up momma's face

Like that hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that, the taps and stools and the tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned, burned

Of all the small town Barney Fifes
And bloodhounds in this town
I'm the only one who ever found out about

That hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that, the taps and stools and the tables got turned

To the only joint my momma ever burned, burned, burned, burned

Internal and External Conflict.

One internal conflict is he keeps calling himself a monster. A external conflict is he might spend the rest of his life in jail.

Why did the author write the book?

I think the author wrote the book because maybe the author might experience or heard something like that in his life time.

Quotes

I haven't seen any quotes but i think one would be since he continues to call himself monster.
