Studs Terkel, R. I. P.

In Chi-town's political snake pit
he meant what he said, didn't fake it
This regular guy
looked life in the eye
and said, "Take it easy, but take it."

Asking questions on work, war and race
his voice, full of grit, had a grace
A ham on dark rye
with a wink in his eye
Chicago was Studs Terkel's place
