The Deadly Wound

Our aging infrastructure 
Is in critical need
Of major renovation
But put off by ravenous greed
The wounded global economy
Struggles as it beats
Critically depending on 
The condition of its streets
Its power grids
Its skies
We could curb our appetite
It's more likely
Something dies

    Yes, we should start take care of things. I hope our politicians, policy makers know what they are doing. Everybody has a job. You can see things others don't. That's really good, Jon. Great job.
