Mary's Kitchen - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

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 scrounge for scatter with Li'l Jimmy
soothe Jackie's troubled mind
It eases my pain
strollin down that 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're a little like me
I'll hear your story Gus
minus the fee
Don't cause me no damage
not even a smidgen
Go have a good cry
in your free
coffee and cocoa
Three Fingered Sally
forget her
she's loco.
See you
at Mary's
