Backstreet Blues

There’s a tribute
never been written
by the average dude
in smoky bars
who just hasn’t been bitten -

and whose life is a habit
that he’s just senselessly sipping -

He just sits there
with Old Crazy Joe,
thinking about how the other man’s
life has gone to pot -

and wondering how he can stand it,
suggests another shot.

And Crazy Joe looks right back over at him
and says real slow,
“Man, if I could write,
I’d sure have sumthin’ to sing…”
