Windy City Man

Windy City Man

Oh you
city dweller
time and traveler
Handsome guy
on adventure
With his
accent
people
know him
as a
Windy City
man
immediately
But to me
he’s simply
Metropolitan

Windy City
murder capital
huge
skyscrapers
Hub of
finance
Urbs in Horto
Latin for
your City
Garden
canals and
steamboats
Al Capone
and Bugsy
cops and
robbers robbing

Deep dish
pizzas
culture clashes
Immigrants
became your
makeup
Hot dogs
sausage
jazz musicians
your architecture
surpasses others
Cubs and
White Sox
how we
love ya
Backwards river
transit systems
You have made
him Metropolitan

Jean Baptist
300 bridges
No small plan
You are
not windy
Fire rages
through
your history
Commerce and
communications
trading centers
crops and fur
protests riots
mob connected
cold and snowy
God we
love ya

Windy for
your chatty
people this
metropolitan man
is like
no other
You’ve produced
many stars
of various
natures
the metropolitan
man however
is damn special
All else
pale in
this comparison
Greyhound lines
and train stations
put him on
trajectory
home please

You’ve become
my social
fabric
twenty-six
miles of
lakefront
proper’s
Ferris wheels
and Expositions
put him
on the Loop
and hurry
Four state
view
Montgomery Wards
even our
remote controls
Neighborhoods
and friendly
faces
My metropolitan
man must
know everything

City dweller
time and traveler
Handsome guy
on adventure
With his
accent
people
know him
as a
Windy City
man
immediately
But to me
he’s simply
my Metropolitan
Chicagoan
tornado storm
that’s something
