Cracks In The Facade
Like smeared from tears mascara
Streaks of rain water stream down
Smudging pigeon feces on embossed chipped bricks
Once green, now bare and whitened
Naked brittle ivy cling on...
To and through; the cracks of the façade
To the eave...I've climbed those old chipped bricks
Atop the old school that once taught
Ahh, the teachers, the kids...the young me
