Soon aftah I wen move
into da new neighborhood
I walked around wun corner to see
wun catchy sign above wun storefront window—
Next to da name of da joint
wuz wun depiction
of wun 1930s Chicago style gangster.
Da character wuz wearing
wun fedora and wun suit
and he wuz smiling
while he wuz holding wun tommy gun.
Da caption on da bottom of da sign
read “There’s no crime in killing your hunger.”
One of my friends did tell me
dat dis West Side area wuz moa rougher
den wheah I used to live.
At least da owner of da pizzeria
had wun sense of humor.
it’s not as crazy as da East Side of town.
and some suspect bad guys
recently took it
to wun new kine height ovah deah.
responded to wun high speed car chase
