Walking through Times Square with my iPod

Walking through Times Sq.
Hustling and bustling
Dazzling display of neon light
Flock of pigeons takes flight
Chestnuts roasting..breezy caress
All the worlds a Concert Place..
Perfectly choreographed
Dancing ..swaying
To the strains of Dvoraks New World..
Is that a baton waving in my direction..?
Never mind..
It’s the middle finger
of some babbling cabbie
Defending his yellow box seat

Picking up the tempo a tad
Track 2
All is good again..
Ahh The Beatles.
Accompanying..this grand cast
All the lonely people..
And yellow submarines..
Blending.. grooving..
I’m sorry..did I bump you with my bag?
The look in your eyes..
Your jawing angry mouth
Sends me one feed..
But all I hear is
Love is all you really need...

'sfunny -I was just walking the other day, and instead of listening to it on my iPod, I was singing "all the lonely people" in my head. all the lonely people, where do they all come from... (very apropos for the bright city lights of times square...)

In NYC, you bumped into someone with a murderous look and you live to tell the tale...
you must be one big guy!

Sounds vaguely familiar...Oh, maybe because you wrote this before. :D I loved this post then, and I love it now. I think Kasamba might be impressed how polite people in NY actually are.

Love it. I feel as though I just visited-- though I've never been there. Thanks for the trip
