Grindhouse (Aka “the Deuce”) - Poem by Yoni Assis

Welcome to the Grindhouse!
Your ultimate funhouse
Movies galore
Prostitute amore

42nd Street
NYC’s heartbeat
Countless tricks
Dangerous treats

Exploitation reigned supreme
A film buff’s wet dream
A scream queen
A hardcore scene

Hustlers trolled the aisle
Men followed in a pile
Absolutely no guile
Lying on the tile

Slimy scumatoriums
Large-screen auditoriums
Cannibal vomitoriums
Never a moratorium

Teen agers

Only the lonely
Also the stoney
The dopey
The gropey

Glory holes
Stripper poles
Pay the toll
Score a goal (or herpes)

Good times in the City
When it was seedy
The Hall destroyed it all
Sold its damn soul

Eminent domain was their scam
Residents booted due to this sham

The Deuce was loose
Highly-charged juice
Now stripped of its glory
A really sad story
