COYOTE FROM CENTRAL PARK

CAME ACROSS THE G.W.B.
LAST NIGHT ABOUT THE HOUR OF THREE,
JUST ANOTHER WEARY IMMIGRANT,
YEARNING TO BE FREE.
 
NOSED AROUND CHINATOWN,
SEARCHING FOR SOME SCRAPS.
FOUND A PARK IN THE VILLAGE,
AND STOPPED THERE FOR A NAP.
 
STANDING IN TIMES SQUARE,
STARING AT THE NEON LIGHTS.
HAD TO DODGE A GYPSY CAB,
RACING THROUGH THE NIGHT.
 
FOLLOWED A LADY UP
PARK AVENUE,
IN HER CHINCHILLA COAT,
WITH LEOPARD PANTS,
AND A ZEBRA SCARF AROUND HER THROAT.
 
I’M THE COYOTE FROM CENTRAL PARK,
AND I’M ONLY PASSING THROUGH.
WHILE GERSHWIN PLAYS THE OPENING THEME
FROM RHAPSODY IN BLUE.
 
OUT IN FRONT OF THE PLAZA,
HANSOM CABS WAITING FOR A FARE.
THE PERFUME OF WEALTH AND POWER,
LINGERING IN THE AIR.
 
MY APPROACHING SCENT
SPOOKS THE TIRED HORSES.
FOR, EVEN IN HIGH SOCIETY,
THERE ARE GREATER FORCES.
 
BACK BEHIND THE DAKOTA,
RUMMAGING THROUGH THE GARBAGE CANS.
JOHN WAS THE WALRUS,
BUT TONIGHT, I AM THE EGGMAN.
GOO GOOG A CHOO! AHOOOOO!

I’M THE COYOTE FROM CENTRAL PARK,
AND I’M ONLY PASSING THROUGH.
WHILE GERSHWIN PLAYS THE OPENING THEME
FROM RHAPSODY IN BLUE.
