And the Poets Down Here...
Newark By The Sea
By Gene Lazo

Jersey boys looking for Jersey girls
in juke joint bars and Tilt-a-Whirls
Summer nights dripped with passion sweat
Shiver now in winter's neglect
Like a rusting GTO
that was born to run again
The boardwalk waits
'neath a neon Cheshire grin
Madam Marie, oh Madam Marie
the cops are asking
what do you see?
Madam Marie, oh Madam Marie
is the moon waxing
over Newark by the sea?
