Richard Schnap- A Poem


I have been to Boston
The Cradle of Liberty
Where I drank with the ghost of Kerouac
In hope he would inspire me

And I have been to New Orleans
The City that Care Forgot
Where I sat by the great Mississippi
As it told me the whole story of man

And I have been to Philadelphia
The City of Brotherly Love
Where I learned that sometimes madness
Can make the most sense of all

And I have been to Chicago
The City of the Big Shoulders
Where I discovered the heart of America
Is a shadow that follows you home
