The Tiger Hotel: They Took my Money, Baby

I generally leave my personal life out of my postings, but I feel like I should explain why this all may seem rushed and thrown together. My family and I are moving to the Memphis area in about a week, so time to compose literary works of silliness is not in abundance. In honor of moving so close to Graceland--not to mention the good time some Dawg fans had at the Tiger Hotel--I threw together this poem in about 20 minutes toiled long and hard on this poem inspired by Elvis's "Heartbreak Hotel."

I am glad that it sounds like the victims are going to get some restitution because the Tiger Hotel powers that be realized that they were toast if they didn't pony up did the right thing out of the goodness of their hearts. I don't know if/when I'll post anything next week as life is and will continue to be hectic for the near future, but for now, enjoy this poem with apologies to Elvis Presley:

Sing along!

Well, conference play was starting,
so I found a new place to dwell.
It's a landmark in Columbia called
the Tiger Hotel.

Oh, they took my money, baby,
they took my money;
they took my money and they lied.

Though the elevator's busted,
and rooms are still half-done,
they'll run up bogus charges
but on receipt, list none.

Oh, they took my money, baby,
they took my money;
they took my money and they lied.

Well, the front desk said one thing,
but the manager passed the buck.
The GM back-tracked and piled on,
and I told them all, "Well, shucks."

They took my money, baby,
they took my money;
they took my money and they lied.

Hey, now, if the hotel cheats you
and you got a tale to tell,
just write a post and tweet about
The Tiger Hotel.

They took my money, baby,
they took my money;
they took my money and they lied.

The Tiger Hotel's been busted,
after Tigers said, "No way.
Conference teams won't like us if
we treat them all this way."

They took my money, baby,
they took my money;
they took my money and they lied.
