Days and Nights

Written by: jim joyce



Time passes slowly as I wander the streets

Gas and food prices soaring high  
Cars towed into the middle of the night 
Foreclosures stealing neighborhoods ,
 Soup kitchens provide free food
Jobs are scarce,  illegal immigrants are not 
 Overcrowded tenement buildings with attitude
Drug lords , gangs and pimps, decaying city ruins
Gun shots heard everywhere, bodies litter the streets at high noon
Nature pounding on the doors of civilization
The line between man and beast grows thinner 
 Storms rage thru the night ,  the end in sight 

Time passes slowly as I wander the streets
