Poem: "Ode to NYC" by Robert McDermott

Ode to NYC
Robert McDermott

I want to see the clash of the classes
The dichotomy between the debutantes and the downtrodden

wallow in the welfare
scream at those who don't care

soak up society
revel in the rivalry

step on the suited
smile at the smart

vilify the antagonists
snore at the soporifics

bleed in the gutter
be saved by another

turn out the lights
smile at the night

experience the extremes
of a midnight's dream
