THE BURBS BIRTHED BEAUTY

              A BEAUTY BORN OF THE ‘BURBS

I showed her the steamier and seedy side 
A place where the desperate have tried, cried and died
Young Ms. Suburbs took to it’s derelict charm
As we’d stroll downtown with arms tangled in arm

She had never been confronted by the pitiful and the poor before
They never showed up at her mahogany and gold leafed front door
The beggars on Broadway fascinated her
As beauty in the ‘burbs had created her

I led her to a land of underground sorrow
Where beleaguered moles belittle tomorrow 
I showed her both the glory and the fear
In a land difficult for a body to bear

The shoddy sidewalks spit out steam
As the lost ones don’t even dare to dream
Their nights are as dark as their prospects seem
While manic depressives scurry and scream

I showed her the lives which led to death deep underground
The place where subways vomit out the unfortunate found
She was profoundly effected as we strolled down concrete curbs
And it was evident my tour was a life altering alliance for Little Miss Burbs
