Hood Lullaby



Goodnight moon
Goodnight stars
Goodnight po-pos
Goodnight fiends
Goodnight hoppers
Goodnight hustlers
Goodnight scammers
Goodnight to everybody
Goodnight to one and all.


– The Wire

There are no children in Chicago (circa 1996).

Rock-a-bye baby, stay off the block

When the heat ploughs, the shutters will rock

When the dawn breaks, send prayers to all

And rise up dear baby, don’t you dare fall.
