Before, people could hear the noise of the street.
Now, you can barely hear the pit pat of your feet.
Before, you could get chips by going to the store.
Now, it's not that simple anymore.
Before, you could look on the street,
And there would be people here and there.
Now, nothing but fear everywhere.
Before, people could go to Disneyland.
Now, some people call the city bland.
But the City is still going,
No matter how it looks.
The City is still full of people,
And the Library still has its books.
People are still working,
No matter what background they are in,
And now people are seeing,
How much they value their kin.
It's still the same hustle and bustle,
This city has not yet lost its muscle,
People are still working all day long,
No matter what, New York City stays strong.
Things may look a little strange,
But it's going to be okay,
Because then again,
Who hasn't seen things change?
