Treasure Island

Buddy Bee Anthony

Mary's Kitchen

They say whiskey's
a poor man's woman
cash money
a rich man's wine
But, I'm goin downtown
to Mary's Kitchen

to see what I might find
I'll eat tators with li'l Jimmy
soothe Jackie's troubled mind
It eases my pain
strollin down the lane
to Mary's Kitchen

where It's fine,
to be 'a' bitchin
bout that woman 'o' yours,

used to be mine
Now, I ain't too much for baseball
and boxin makin me flinch.
There's plenty of cake and doughnuts,
maybe a five dollar cinch.
And, they're off
at Mary's Kitchen,

win, show, or place.
Where the best you can do
is fall out of the race
If work's too much fuss,
and you are like me
I'll hear your story Gus,
minus the fee.
It don't cause me no damage,
not even a smidgeon.
So go cry in your free
coffee and cocoa.
There fingered Sally
forget her,
she's loco.
See you
at Mary's Kitchen.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
