The Old House on Hoover Street

~THE OLD HOUSE ON HOOVER STREET~ There it sat empty and sad Windows shattered and the bottom one boarded up There it sat helpless and alone No one there to protect its contents A shabby two story on one of the most sinful streets in these parts A dilapidated shack with its heart ripped out Who dare go there now but demons and bats? Why would anyone want to step foot into this hell hole of a trap? Bring the bulldozers in I say! Bull doze this bad memory of someone’s life! Rats are scampering about on its main floor Bulldoze the pain of this once old house Allow someone to rebuild another with a fresh new dream Gwendolen Rix 9-1-14
