Southern Style

The Foo Fighters
Turned me on to
Allen Toussaint.

Now I can’t
Stop listening to
The Bright Mississippi.

There is an ease,
A southern smooth,
That puts me at the river James.

There’s just enough ragtime,
A party feel,
That has my feet dancing in the river bank’s sand.

There’s the right amount of blues,
A soul lifter,
That has me giving thanks.

Thanks to the Foo Fighters for
Showing me something new.
Thanks for Allen Toussaint.
