Cacophony of Life

The cacophony of city streets, A mish mash of jarring sounds cars whizzing by, horns blaring, Ambulance wails in a distance Buses moan and screech Clickety-Clack of the overhead “L” trains rumbling by The din, the clamor, the ruckus, the racket, rattle and roar. The street musicians Dogs barking furiously down the lane The chatter at the roadside vendors, Oh, the babel of voices, the drunken brawls. Come stealthily, O Death, upon the wings of silent breath, Underneath the mud and dust I’ll lie quietly. ~10/15/19 ~Contest: Give Me Your Best New Poem ~Sponsor: Emile Pinet

Congratulations Abdul! Your poem has placed "Second" in my contest. It was a very tough contest to judge because I was very strict, well done my friend, Emile.
