I saw on TV that Spielberg is going to make “West Side Story.”
It’s the story of my pre-Bar Mitzvah days in East Harlem.
It brought back many memories.
My gang, too, had a “rumble.”
I almost killed a guy I didn’t know.
I was in many a gang fight.
Came home with many a sore nose.
Many times it was punched but never broken.
I was just a lucky guy. I used up many of my “nine lives.”
