coffeeville Mississippi

wow i've never seen such a small city with so many curves and hills
till i moved back down south to the town of coffeeville
alot of you might not have heard of it for it's not a very big city
just a small little spot in yalabusha county,,that's in mississippi
now it's the type of place where everyone really knows your names
and besides maybe a thing or to nothing ever changes
they dont have a Mcdonalds,a walmart,or even a shopping mall
not a movie theater a bowling alley not none of those things at all
but what they do have is hospitality that i can truly say
cause regaurdless of how many time you see a person they'll speak anyway
some will ask u how you are doing some will ask about your kin
you dont even have to know them and they act as if you're friends
and it's hard to do anything without everybody knowing
for some have nothing to do but gossip and you can find that so annoying
but talk about good eating there is food galore
you can buy catfish and chicken at any gas station or corner store
and if that's not what reall pleases you 
there is somebody in coffeeville right preparing a cookout or a bar b-que 
you can buy bootleg DVDs from just about anybody you wanna
you can always find nick or Bubba hanging out at rascals corner
it does'nt have much but one grocery store
but no ot really shops there any more
on sunday a bunch of guys hang at the under the tree hangout
or you can find some playing dominoes down at rolins house
cause the poolroom only opens during the week 
and by nine oclock you're staring at just empty streets
we have two club one for the hip hop and one for the old 
it's usally pretty late before both of them close 
go to camelot and get the new of the day 
and there is not many places where the kids can go and play
but for some reason everyone seems to just hang around 
 i geuss all and all it's a simple little town

    you've described this little town so well! being from a big city, it's hard for me to relate to this type of place but you've made it appealing in your poem.
