Maybe Crazy

June 7th, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

Maybe Crazy - the new semi-autobiographical tune from Corey A. EdwardsJosephine lives on the streets
They say he wrote a children’s book
He wears a purse on his head
and trusts no one who drinks Coke
I once gave him some food from my picnic
in exchange for a handful of white rocks
I misunderstood. I thought
he just wanted a paper plate

Maybe crazy, yeah
Gone as a hoot owl
raised in a closet
Crazy, yeah – you know
but …

Nail It Down

February 8th, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

nail it down - The 5-finger discount twinsSome say they were born under a bad sign
Sometimes there is just a bad seed
When them Edwards boys come a-sniffin’ around
I tell you now, you better pay heed

I heard they stole some Matchbox from the Woolworths
Some Abba-Zabbas from the Alco
They took a whole damn register from Ben Frank’s
It just grew legs and walked out the door

Y’gotta nail it down

Witch

The Three Witches From Macbeth - Alexandre-Marie Colin

The Three Witches From Macbeth
Alexandre-Marie Colin

Did she come from the trees
Or maybe straight up from the ground?
All I know is one minute she’s not there
Then she is without a sound

Red stains around a mouth hole
Like a screaming red blot
Blue tattoos on leathered brown skin
with eyes both black and hot

Hey, Wimpy

December 27th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Hey, WimpyHey Wimpy,
where have you gone?
You used to be underfoot
always taggin’ along

And Wimpy,
I know you felt wronged
but you can’t go on bein’ hurt
your whole life long

Are you coming home soon?
Will I see you there?
I long to hear your jokes again
and muss your hair

Wrote A Song

November 29th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

I wrote a song, I wrote a song - yeah!I wrote a song

I couldn’t find a rhyme

I cannot play it
like I oughta should but

I wrote a song
I wrote a song, man!
I wrote a song,
a really real song!

Actress

August 15th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

actress

Watch the boys all gather ’round
responding to her siren sound
Silken hair and perfect skin
but she lets nobody in
Once a lover, once a friend
Once upon a time – the end
Now her lines have all been read
Nothing for her left unsaid

Follow the

learn their

A Real Gem of A Ditty

April 1st, 2009 by Corey A. Edwards

I love the potential rhythm of language; tongue twisters, alliteration, rhyme – I mess around with this stuff all the time.

When a friend asked me to hear the phrase “jiggle it a little, it’ll open,” saying that it was worthy of the “Mairzy Dotes” treatment, well, I couldn’t resist.

A Yunka Chunk

October 2nd, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards


(a yunka-chunk a yunka-chunk as with a banjo)

I’m chokin’ on smoke
I’m slippin’ in sweat
I fell down
on my kiester
and my pants got wet
Well someone hollered “stop!”
but I aint done yet
I’m chokin’ on smoke
an’ I’m a-slippin’ in sweat
