    Southside Chicago Blues

    Stumbled out of bed this mornin'
    Don't know where I been.
    Don't know what the haps last night
    But it must have been a sin.
    ‘Cause today I got the lowdown blues,
    The Southside Chicago mind-numbin' blues

    I know my baby left me
    That much I will confess.
    Said I was a no-good worthless bum
    And my life was in a mess.
    Gave me the sorrowful blues,
    The Southside Chicago pate-scramblin' blues.

    Got out the frying pan
    Made me some eggs and ham.
    What a miserable life you lead
    When you're livin' on the lam.
    It's enough to give an old ex-con the lowlife blues
    The Southside Chicago brain-dead blues.

    Got to get my act together
    Got to get my baby back
    ‘Cause I'm no good without her
    And that's a goddurn fact.
    Got to shake these dreadful blues,
    These Southside Chicago drivin'-me-crazy blues.

    Called her on the phone today
    Begged her come on home
    Promised I would shape up good
    And never more to roam.
    These awful blues are killin' me
    These Southside Chicago ball-breakin' blues

    She said Don't call me up no more
    You're just a no-good cheatin' liar
    I wouldn't even piss on you
    If you was caught afire
    I hope you keep your freakin' blues
    Those Southside Chicago pot-smokin' blues.

    Please don't give up on me
    Try to show some pity
    ‘Cause without you life is empty
    In this lonely windy city
    While I suffer with these desolation blues
    These Southside Chicago mind-numbin',
    Pate-scramblin' brain-dead, drivin'-me-crazy,
    Ball-breakin', pot-smokin' BLUES! read more »

    Black N White (Cloak N Dagger Poem)

    I've always been a man who treasures black and white.
