Not Nashville

i wrote this one a few years ago, but just found it, and it is still ringing a little bit true unfortunately…

We Are Nashville

We were at @cremacrema today
And we got a dirty look from a
Stubbly guy
In a plaid shirt

Because my son (he’s three)
Laughed for joy
At the prospect
Of a hot chocolate.

We also got two Cubans (not cigars) and
Enjoyed the heck out of them
While we watched the Titans jumbotron from a distance.
This is Nashville.

Let me be clear:
You can be plaid
And still not be Nashville,

People, c’mon.
