Bombs For The Starving

Alleys strewn with endless trash... Discarded needles as broken glass Shopping carts, these cornerstones Of make shift homes; enslaved lives Beaten hearts, grime clad children Running wild; adorning downtown Parks while suits pass by and sirens Wail rushing past a starving dog; lines Endless forming at the courthouse Another day to pay these tickets ? Jury pools overflowing; save the city A model for her nation and aspiring As unemployment declines towards Twenty percent; Congress special Session called from their highrise Views an emergency you find to feed The rich and famous and take up arms To fight the Light this plight they cry Can't you see as the gavel falls; here here.
