city of all shoulders

im in the train station

of the city that i love

my city

they call it the second city

but it is second to none

it is the city of big shoulders indeed

big shoulders

fat shoulders

skinny shoulders

white shoulders

black shoulders

hispanic shoulders

asian shoulders

middle eastern shoulders

all kinds of shoulders

but above all

strong shoulders

shoulders strong enough to carry the heart of america

shoulders strong enough to carry the message of working class america

to the rest of the world

destiny

its where babe ruth pointed

its who sinatra sang about

its fundamentally blue collar

and down to earth

it is from the heart

because it is the heart

i love you 

chicago.

    Great city to poetically describe here. It's too bad the Cubs and the White Sox are not playing well this season.
