Brooklyn You'Re A Lady - Poem by Sam Edison

Brooklyn you're a lady you were a mother to us all
You grew up a simple farm girl later you went for city life
It was always the common man that was able to make you his wife
You taught all of us your children discipline when we stepped out of line
Whenever we thought we where big you knocked us down to size
You made sure we were the toughest in the great big city
Training us from young in your alleys parks and streets
You showed us love through celebration night after night
Passing L's and drinking fortys and maybe a good fight
We had the greatest of times growing up and for that mam I love you
Thats why Brooklyn you're a lady no other above you

Brooklyn you're a lady and I understand you have dreams
Still you have abandoned most of your children and divorced the common man
Brought these new men into your home and began to tend their needs
Still they dont trully love you to them you were always second choice
They were rejected by your superficial older sister and then they went for you
Plus you raised us to hate Aunt Manhattan now you're starting to act just like her
Still auntie has some qualities and class and you have lost your soul
Brooklyn you're a lady but sorry you disgust me your heart has turned to coal
