Juke Box Love Song

I could take the Harlem night
and wrap around you,
Take the neon lights and make a crown,
Take the Lenox Avenue busses,
Taxis, subways,
And for your love song tone their rumble down.
Take Harlem's heartbeat,
Make a drumbeat,
Put it on a record, let it whirl,
And while we listen to it play,
Dance with you till day--
Dance with you, my sweet brown Harlem girl.

i hate the school food do you
There could be more lines
I thought that only in India there are complaints about the food served to children in Govt.schools.Now I find that it is also a problem in other countries.School authorities and State administration should take note that healthy food is served to children who are in their growing stages.Moreover Parents should also take note that they should not pamper their children too much as pampered children find it hard to adjust outside their home environment.
This is a good pitch for home cooked good healthy simple food...well written
If it is real, there can't be anything worse. Great poem.
