City in ruins

Welcome to our city
Or rather was our city
My name is a victim
And i will be your tourist guard today

As we drive through the city
You shall see
Wretched, filthy slums
Crumbling cinder tenement buldings
Bombed out shops
Scorched remains of cars
Empty playgrounds
Your nose shall be greeted
By a stench of uncollected garbage
And deserted sewers
The farther we drive into the city
The further we plunge into the worst
scenarios of human misery

Video the city
Take photos of the ruins
Show them to the world
You may save other cities from a similar tragic fate

    Great idea and a great poem. Among the scenes of devastation, there is a ray of hope and optimism for the reconstruction of what has been destroyed. (Report) Reply

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
