listening to the blues

is better than having a doctor

look after you

the blues is tough medicine

you take the prescribed dose

and learn what's afflicting you and maybe heal some

and even if it's fatal it is a more soothing

way to the grave than a priest could show you

in fact doctors and priests give me the blues

that's why I'd rather listen to Roscoe Holcombe's

Graveyard Blues than to some Ava Maria sung by

some overdramatic neurotic

the blues do not give me the blues
