Brooklyn- My Home

Coops, condos, coops, condos, a house
A one family, a two family, a penthouse
A ranch, a Victorian, an old brownstone
All I wish for, is an abode of my very own

A five hundred plus foot square by square
A cozy little den with a big comfy armchair
A fistful of blue sky and a patch of leafy green
All will give life to my dreams n a lovely sheen

Prospect Park West, Park Slope and Kensington
Windsor Terrace and Carroll Gardens, all beckon
Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Sunset Park, Clinton Hill,
All these hoods are quite savory and give me a thrill

New York, city of dreams, five suburbs, a wonderful skyline
Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island are fine
But my heart is set on one, only one corner and that beckons
Of all the five boros that make New York, and that is Brooklyn!

Prospect Park, Public Library, Museum, Botanical Gardens
Academy of Music, Grand Army Plaza, and lovely Fountains
Food Coop, shops, restaurants, churches, schools with griffin
All have a distinct flavor and I wish with all my heart to fit in

Coops, condos, coops, condos, a house I need
A fistful of blue sky, a patch of verdant green
An abode of my own is my wish that is quite ardent
And now I will achieve this through a competent agent!!!
