Hello Chicago

You are resident of Illinois
I visited Chicago many times
now Covid bars me

I love the lake and the beach
How I wish we had met then
life is like a flowing river
some swim along
others across
few swim against the current
but I can't swim

they put me on a boat
and with a pump skin bellow
which would float
if i am about to sink

no I can't drown
I am like the rock of Gibraltar
as heavy
believe me

How I wish to come to Chicago
once more to see the bridge
on the canal part
as ships gradually dart
some excitation I missed
so they showed me the Beans

'Twas exquisite
as much incredible
you all know it

You have Chicago and Boston mixed up! Do they have great beans in Chicago?
I've never been there, I wouldn't know. Or are you full of beans, as my mother would say?
~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Step out of your windows
go and see the
it's as high as the ALPS perhaps
you can see the whole of Chicago
as you see yourself in a mirror
google if u may
in Neo there is no way
ah to upload snaps

WHY live in Queen Victoria era
