I saw you at your recent concert at the Red Dragon in Baton Rouge LA You sang a song that I don't think was yours...maybe you co wrote it. The chorus was "because that's what poets do. If you could give me some info on that song I would appreciate it. I truly enjoyed your songs and the musical talent of you and Joe Joe

Indeed, that was "Everette" by my friend Steve Brooks, inspired by the New Orleans poet Everette Maddox, who died in 1989. For more info you can check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everette_M... or http://www.stevebrooks.net/
