Another New York Day

Flashing lights emergency,
The police cars in a row.
Ask what’s going on and hear
That no one seems to know.

Fire engines block the street;
Cars have been diverted.
Soon the press trucks will appear,
Once they have been alerted.

Just another New York day,
Though tourists stand there gawking;
Natives give a glance and then
We shrug and keep on walking.

    This sounds like quite the opposite from the sleepy state of Idaho! It's considered "big news" each time a fire truck zooms pass... not sure if I could handle the hustle and bustle of New York (though I did go to London once... that was pretty crowded!). Nicely written... but I'll always be more of an open-space, mountains and creeks, kinda guy.

    Eh. :) That's not my sentiment towards the quality of your poem. Just the theme. :)

    Oh, I wish to visit New York some day. I think it's so cool with all the skyscrapers and all the places one can shop :). Good write, Ilene!
