Another Letter From Memphis

hobo

Chased a dragon from Memphis.

Tried to grab his tail.

His grasp proved elusive.

Now I’m spending time in jail.

Got time off for good behavior.

Found a job in a store.

Pretty girls use the entrance.

I go out the back door.

Can’t get myself no credit.

Governor took away my vote.

Got nobody no how

took off on a freighter boat.

Always thought blue was a color.

Now I know it’s a name.

For those who go on living

desperate without shame.
