147. Soul Feud

by Dr. Charles Frederickson - Bangkok, Thailand

Never getcha self inta pissin’
Contest with stank hightailin’ skunk

Where sushi is called bait
Earthworms danglin’ from rusty hooks
Wrigglin’ night crawlers glowworm possums
Actin’ crazier than sprayed cockroaches

Just ‘cause chickens got wings
Don’t mean them’all ken fly

Uprooted human beans collard greens
Hog maw chitterlings black-eyed peas
Hominy grits soaked in lye
Crumbly runt hush puppy litter

Puttin’ yer boots in de
Oven still taint changin’ nuthin’

Bristly catfish whiskers unshaven stubble
Stranded crawfish fetid potluck jambalaya
Force-fed toxic mumbo jumbo gumbo
Bubblin’ brown sugar pee-can pralines

Don’t piss on my leg
And tell me it’s rainin’
