The train slides out like a snake from its hole,
it lets some on, it lets some go.
A man takes off his glasses, pinches his nose,
sinks deeper in his seat and thinks of home.
Glittering girls take self-portraits with an iphone.
Businessmen boast of their bubblegum deal,
I grin and take it in because it's so raw and so real.
I can smell what you're cooking from the front of your stairs.
I know you don't like me looking from your mean old sneer.
At this block party even the babies swear!
Lady liberty is showing off her lacy underwear
Right there in the subway chair.
