Urban Decay

economic disparity

polarity

of the senses

unrelentless

chaos nests

in the alleyways

and houses

behind doors

of non-families

collecting cans

like the garbage man

my feet move

down the boulevard

like it's quicksand

and the pawn shops

hour motels

the no tell motel

but the ho tell everybody


- the economic disparity

polarity of hierarchy

try n move up the level

into obscurity -


cars move real slow

hoping for the magic

man

to wave his

wand

so you move beyond

the dim streets

to your imaginary

land

Yes, it is a good poem. Oh what devastation Democrats hath wrought as they have ruled our cities for 50 years or more with an iron fist.

Some sad realities within these words. Good poem, Jonesboro (Fin.)
