A ASS POCKET FULL OF BLUES
and a scotch full of boob Is anyone as cool
as the old Delta crooners? Wake up on a grey
day in your stinkin city Problems of the world
wearied You wonder how the young man named
Bowe a POW for a ¼ of his life will fare
Will the released Commandos of terror take down
another tower? Will Bowe take a wife? Resume his
old life? Or has he been turned like Brody on Homeland?
Now contemplate the 2 cousins 14 & 15 found hanging
from a mango tree Uttar Pradesh Wednesday India will
further revise its gang-rape laws There’s some strangefruit
Billie Holiday & a band of angels wrestling with the ropes
Why the blues were made for times like these!
Just look at the ecstasy on the Howlin man’s face
Lift you out of the mud & blood stained trajectory of our
21st century Just listen carefully The crossroads are everywhere
Juno Beach 70 yrs. Friday Normandy looking clean & tidy
Blood swept out to sea
How low can you swing?
