MADISON AVENUE AND OBAMA’S DAUGHTER
I live in a rich neighborhood on Madison Avenue in the seventies.
This is New York, baby.
The big kahuna.
I went bust in 1993 but managed to keep my apartment.
As Frank Lloyd Wright said,
“Location is everything.”
There was a Wright home near my house where I grew up
In Great Neck.
I have always been in and out of the rich class.
Then they toss me from their pockets and I struggle on the floor
To pay my bills.
Obama’s daughter has vacationed for the last two weeks
Across from my coop.
Twenty secret service cars surround her like they are circling
A wagon train.
Why is it that all democrats like Hillary, Obama and de Blasio
Like to pretend that they lead modest lives,
Like they are part of the great unwashed poor?
I guess it’s for the mass of votes.
I guess political power is more of an aphrodisiac than Monica Lewinsky.
The middle class should do the fool’s dance when they are being
Made fools of by politicians.
