Tumbling Down

Tumbling down
By Nate Spears
Published in 2012 Main Street Poems by Nate Spears

Zoom in closer
It’s as clear as a jumbo screen
Get rich or die younger
Is the objective in streets
In high definition

Not amused by funny
City transportation is tumbling
With high velocity; and
Unlawful might
Parading clowns to jail by night
Death is the only alternative now
In high definition

Ignorance has ruined the day
Intelligence has fled away
Into the night’s air
Abandoning a new day
With no traces of existence
Horror is the daily mission
Education is the new fight
But, hasn’t it always been.

    I wish I could give this poem to every young man and woman I know back in Brooklyn NY.

    I read a lot about issues in the African American community, and issues all around the world, sometimes I try to bring them to light through my poetry in a creative way.
