Does anybody, other than I and most of New Jersey,
Know that New Jersey
Is between Philadelphia and New York City?
Weather men do not talk about us.
Weather maps only show Philadelphia
Connected to New York…
With half their names written
Over little pieces of New Jersey.
Boy, do I feel left out!
Much of the time I wonder about the weather.
Is New Jersey glossed over for a reason?
Birds seem to know that we are here,
Juncos and Robins come and go,
According to the seasons.
We have oceans and rivers,
Streams and such.
Industry and orchards.
Cities, suburbs, and farms galore,
Make us a well rounded group.
How can they overlook us?
And leave us out of the loop?
