Blues From The Deep Old South

Blues From The Deep Old South

Oh, Lord!  The night is long,
made longer by my mind engulfed
in an ocean of blues from the deep old South 
when my ancestors were slaves on the plantations.

And the day forebodes
longer hours as my hands
made bloody with callouses
from dirty toiling in the factory.
