AUNT MARY AND AUNT JOANIE
On a bus I did ride
to the NJ Seaside.
Ten years earlier I was also there
with my aunts with golden curly white hair.
That’s when Trump made a splash
offering old lady a lot of cash.
Now Great Aunt Mary and Aunt Joanie
did go with me–
to a fun vacation in Atlantic City.
On the board walk we did walk
it was fun I kid you not.
I did not gamble-had to pay the rent.
Tiny little red notebook I did buy
writing stories by ocean side.
Writing on trains and subways too
all stories still there, there’s quite a few.
Now in 2000 I went there again
visited Long Island to see my friends.
Went to Javits Convention Center in NYC
Yes this was the year I missed my plane
Years before Twin Towers fell in sadness and pain.
Would visit NYC again and again
everything has really changed.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum
will open up this year–
Residents will remember friends so dear.
Now my Great Aunt passed away
I will have to visit the boardwalk once again.
