Bombs For The Starving

Alleys strewn with endless trash...
Discarded needles as broken glass
Shopping carts, these cornerstones
Of make shift homes; enslaved lives
Beaten hearts, grime clad children
Running wild; adorning downtown 
Parks while suits pass by and sirens 
Wail rushing past a starving dog; lines
Endless forming at the courthouse
Another day to pay these tickets ?
Jury pools overflowing; save the city
A model for her nation and aspiring
As unemployment declines towards
Twenty percent; Congress special
Session called from their highrise
Views an emergency you find to feed
The rich and famous and take up arms 
To fight the Light this plight they cry
Can't you see as the gavel falls; here here.
