Dead End by Emily Romano
Dilly- dally, shilly- shally,
Sorrow loiters in the alley;
Poverty’s hung out to dry
While the hungry children cry;
Cost of ghetto life is dear -
More than bread is needed here.
Dilly- dally, shilly-shally,
Sorrow loiters in the alley.
the theme for this challenge is STARDUST, just ONE, NEW, ORIGINAL piece is needed...
i am looking for creative appeal, flow of substance and emotional energy
