NYC

AUNT MARY AND AUNT JOANIE


 

Toddler Suzy on Atlantic City Boardwalk 1967, Atlantic City New Jersey.

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.

NYC ADVENTURE

In a limo I did ride
I was traveling just before twilight.
Many people I did see
they all looked happily back at me

I did surprisingly see a nun
then I looked out my window people having fun.
The my limo did stop and the wheels did squeak–
I saw in review mirror profile of me with my sparkling cheek.
I was quite hidden in view people only see my blonde hair

that is true.

I was on my way to my own comedy show which I didn’t know–

that I would be the comedy of my own funny show.
My entourage was patiently waiting outside–
I realize I was out of my limo with nowhere to hide!
Click, click the cameras went
I snuck out of limo to my own comedy event.
It was in NYC at the Apollo
my name lit up in lights like no tomorrow.
I thought no way in all my days
I would I would be on the Apollo stage!
That was just my luck, I heard the alarm and then I woke up.
