    CHICAGO MAZE


    Chi-town fire like it was an desire
    O'Leary sweet and deary
    DeKoven st. where da fire sweep
    As it was place on da cow
    where history say it was just chow
    for she kick ova a lainter
    as the city lit up like a banner

    While da greatest of fair
    of chicago 1893 wit care
    fortysix nations was truely there
    marked the 400th anniversary
    of great discovery
    as it rose from da past fire history

    Black belt of none wealth
    historical wave people was delt
    pushed into a south side spot
    bronzeville boy was it hot
    where greats like sonny Rollins
    reside as the city south died
    from poverty / hardship /crime
    I cried , I cried !!

    Da history of jazz how it last
    from the past greats who
    made chicago home
    sonny, miles and louis Armstrong
    help give birth as jazz hit
    1917 clash from mississippi
    of da new orleans southern crash
    12th street station was da birth spankin
    two seven south theater of pekin
    where jazz was working
    down to the J-Town fork music

    Chicago became historical
    in events known to history
    but still da great fire lay a mystery
    things unspoken and unheard
    these are da tales of this chi-world
    all i can do is live to learn
    yet i have this feverish yearn
    Chicago
