South to North

eggs and grits squash and shrimp cocktail
is what I ate living down South
living here had some lobster tail
sadly there’s no grits for my mouth

dad reminded me that for years
he was a Rebel to the bone
besides the South he loved his beer
and down South eateries he own

but when he died he had nothing
I was with him on his birthday
happy Birthday I did not sing
Not knowing that’s his last birthday

y wive's from the South
a great cook as well
great squash to my mouth
we're both living well

    I guess you live in the north now? ARe you a Yankee yet? I had a very good friend from Alabama when I was growing up in Iowa and she just missed her rebel roots so much. She ended up back down south! This was fun to read.
