Although I didn't make it to Chicago, I want to share some poems and why I decided to write these poems. One for the late Johnnie Mae Dunson, the other for the late Wesley Willis and Paraplegic MC.

Got The Body Blues (Poemsong LISTEN & READ)

Verse 1
Getting older
Breaking down faster
Got the body Blues

Chorus
Disability speeds up the body clock
Tick tock tick tock can’t stop
Giving me the body Blues

Verse 2
Crack snap pop
Aches & pains
Especially when it rains

Chorus
Disability speeds up the body clock
Tick tock tick tock can’t stop
Giving me the body Blues

Verse 3
Remedies of yesterdays
Don’t work today
That sucks, I have to say

Bridge
At night, I’m sore
In the morning, I’m stiff
All day my body is singing the Blues
Better yet it’s hollering the Blues

Chorus
