Differed Dreams

The flames flickered and licked
We-men, women and infants
Unknowingly,
They licked up potential 
They licked up dreams
They licked up futures
They innocently licked up hopes

Fires cremated failures and frustrations
Like bulldozers they overhauled and mauled little pockets
Of joys and tears of ghetto residents

Here, they smoked potential
Here, they smoked greatness
Here, they smoked innocence

Things that we'd never known, or will ever ever know!
