Sin City

This city is angry,
A city in rage,
This city is burning,
Page by page,
This city is envy,
This city is greed,
In this city,havoc,
Death and corruption breed....

In this city,its dark,
Poorly lit light,
Everything wrong,
Nothing goes right,
Souls wanting to be saved,
Screaming in the night,
It shivers my body,
My mind, in fright....

Cant stay in this city,
Have to find GOD,
Leaving Sin City,
Packing my bag.......

    I was staitioned in this city for three years just prior to 1960. Population 100, 000 and 90,000 of them were prostitutes. There was an air force base one the coastal bluff overlooking russia. There was a hugh japanese army base just outside of town. There was a small American army security agency inside the confines of the japanese base. We were fenced off inside of their fence. Unfortunately we couldn't leave japan and it was really tiresome staying on base.
