Shanty Town

Shanty Town The sun goes down on Shanty Town And drags all light away And not one moonbeam touches ground Though numerous are they. Not even do the eyes of owls Pervade the ebon plight Where air is foul, where stray dogs howl, And babes cry through the night.

Pretty dark, Janice. No pun intended. It definitely makes one think.
