Reader Poetry: SOMERVILLE


By William Nicholas

Yes I live in Somerville
And I guess I always will
It’s called “tree city” so of course it’s very pretty
But Somerville is much more than just a pretty city
It has much more to offer
I’ll try to tell you in this ditty
It has a subway, parks and playgrounds
Great spots to eat and drink
and right outside of Davis Square
on Highland Ave. I think
There’s a bakery to try
Yes you’ve got to try for goodness sake
It’s Kickass Cupcakes
