She died                                                                                                          
under arrest 


I’ll bet she felt under-dressed
for an occasion of such

in-ter-est  


Thankful Billie didn’t see                                                                         
the crooked flood of New Orleans

The Ninth Ward she went peacefully                                       
by morning levies they were free                                              
Her friends were few                                                                              
the pain she knew

Oh how each one was new 
                                                                               
and some like ‘Satchmo’  they were true
i’ll be that she felt under-dressed                                             
for an occasion of such 

In-ter-est

From old New York 

down to the new Bayou                                     
you can hear the Creole cry 

up Harlem Avenue   
                             
We miss you ‘Lady Day’                                                     
Sir Louis                                                                                                         
Langston too 


A dream deferred is black and blue                                           
the Bayou weeps 

for me and you 


These quiet crimes 

the new Bayou


they’re building us 

‘a dream improved’                                      
upon the bodies they removed

                                        
from hallowed ground 

built by The Blues                                     
                                                           
She died 

under arrest        

i’ll bet that she felt under-dressed                                           
for an occasion of such

interest     

  
She 

died

Under arrest.

From 

old New York 

down 

to the new Bayou                                     
you can hear the Creole cry 

up Harlem Avenue   
                             
We miss you ‘Lady Day’                                                     
Sir Louis                                                                                                         
Langston too 


A dream deferred is black and blue                                           
the Bayou weeps 

for me 

and you 

                 
The Ninth Ward 

she went peacefully 

                                   
thankful Billie didn’t see 

the crooked 

flood of New Orleans

The rivers sins
Flint Michigan
Trayvon
Tamir
And
Sandra Bland

The waters’ risin’  up again

These quiet crimes
The new Bayou


Thankful Billie didn’t see

The Crook-ed

Flood “
