MIA ain’t got no love for The Bay—
‘why?’ you ask? To that I say,
No love for The Bay has MIA.
Oh please make note of these truths I relay!
Outside Lands 2009- The last Bay fest she graced the stage.
It was a warm and sunny day,
but nary a ‘Bird Song’ did she play.
Yet ever-faithful, I remained.
“I must see her in concert” I maintained.
About a year later, my opportunity came-
“A show at the Fox!!” I gleefully exclaimed.
Bought my tickets I did, without a delay,
and then I waited and waited, just for that day.
Her set was incredible, she brought her fresh sway!
But it ended abruptly, to my dismay—
“35 minutes?! No fucking way.”
“MIA!” we encored and we begged,
but our cries were not heard on that fateful day.
Almost 4 years later, I still hope and I pray,
and in all this time, a huge fan I stay.
Tour dates she posts for New York and LA,
but still no dates for my beloved Bay.
That is— until yesterday.
“MIA at BFD? I’ll cop a ticket right away!”
… But that can’t be it, I have to say.
After 4 years, a 1-hour festival set?? I cry foul play!
No, we deserve the full show and the stage,
and more tour announcements I know await.
I just want a real show— I’d even go to San Jose!
But until those tour dates come our way,
this is the message that I’ll portray;
MIA ain’t got no love for The Bay.
