As I posted the other day, I’ve now lived down the shore longer than anywhere else in my life. To celebrate that fact (and promote the beautiful Jersey Shore), I’m glad to welcome back Mr. Joseph P. Martino with a poem about the Jersey Shore.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy some poetic verse.
I’ll Always Call the Jersey Shore Home
– Joseph P. Martino
What good is family and friends
When you are thousands of miles away?
And when I return home, it’s for such a short stay?
No matter where I happen to be entertaining on a foreign tour,
There’s nothing like returning to my home on the Jersey Shore.
I’ll always call the Jersey Shore home.
Money and fame is just fine,
But being home with my family will always be my immediate quest,
It’s the only way I’m able to set both my mind and body at rest.
For deep down in my soul,
I know that State of New Jersey is one place my heart loves best.
So no matter what world stage I may appear,
Be it Toronto, Sydney, London, Paris or Rome
There’s no greater feeling
Like performing before my fans at Home.
For I’ll always call the Jersey Shore Home.
