keep on walking

13 . June . 2013

Flashing lights emergency,
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.
