Talking Blues. There it is.
Thanks, that's a great observation/comment.

I did a little research and found this link to a National Public Radio segment. (NPR) - 6:13 length

It points back to Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan and the blues-men that preceded them.
I first took note of this style while listening to Michael Franks and Ben Sidran.
Both influenced by Mose Allison, of course.

And in a sense, we see the roots of Rap as well.
But I think you are correct, what I have done in this song more closely ties to Talking Blues.
