NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 13 -- a Poem, "word list" prompted

The Bridge;
 the day I walked
That day I had walked to work
All the way across the bridge
Graffiti plagued Brooklyn Bridge
Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn
to work, 55 Wall Street
Usually I take the ferry
This day I met a nice man
His group had a deal for me
were trying to buy the bridge
Needing investors they asked
for amounts by the thousands
50 K would make me rich
I said eight that night, my place
He's in prison now, con's end
Sucker!  Set the hustler up
