Poetic Rag

The funniest thing I ever readIn the West Side Rag is best left unsaidThere are so many funny stories thereThat to publish mine here is a bit of a dare The Rag is so erudite, full of wisdom and knowledgeThat to live on the Upper West Side is a color-blind privilegeI live in the Bloomingdale […]
