Mance by K.W. Peery

A
Brazos
bottoms
blues man
born
Beau De Glen

Had a
Choctaw
Mama
and a
dead-thumb
grin...

Played
pocket knife
slide
on the
"Jack of Spades"
Pickin'
down
at Threadgill's
he was
all the
rage...

It was
"Sugar Babe"
shuffle
in five
dollar
shoes
With a
Lipscomb
lean
at the
old
Jade Room...

His voice
was as
hollow
as a
Navasota
stump
King
of his
precinct...
ole Mance
could
thump
