High in the Heights

typewriter

Dear Editor:

High in the Heights as far as I can see, the Reason why I came to be
A Pershing Field swim, a walk down the Ave, The Best food on earth is what Heightsters have
High in the Heights as far as I can see, never will we take a knee
A Washington Park Homer, Schoolyard’s full court, the Heart of a Lion can never be bought
High in the Heights as far as I can see, on the Western Slope is where you’ll find me
A Mosquito Park meeting inside the Round House, the loveliest girl in a pretty pink blouse
High in the Heights as far as I can see, Jersey City Style be it the key
The Palisade Cliff, a night of man hunt, the realest of real or craziest stunt
High in the Heights as far as I can see, a boy in blue jeans in a solid white Tee
Sharing a sundae, an old couples smile, high in the Heights, Eternal a Child
