“Memphis” by Audacious

memphis 2012 still looks like memphis 1989
bar-b-que beale street and orange mound
potholes the pyramid and southern hip hop
grandmother's cooking crooked cops and cheap crops
timber covers school windows night walkers on 3rd street and wet willies serving weak drinks
family reunions the stax museum and robberies
elvis presely sun records and lemoyne owens college
union ave hamburger stands and homicides
honor students false educators and lay-offs
musicians mudd island and labor worker
the mississippi river segregation lines and L I B E R T Y L A N D
