our islands

Written by: The Situation

we see the sun almost everyday
when it's not hiding behind 
a thick haze
we live near tall buildings 
that hide the moon
and the lights of the city
makes the sky a dark gloom
what chance have i to make it 
to the beach
i'm poor and have nothing 
so it's out of my reach
our birds are pigeons
not much to see
and our wildlife the rats
with whom we compete
our beauty is different
than beauty you know
our beauty is make up
and sometimes tatoos
tatoos of the very things you speak
the sun the moon
and a beautiful beach
