Coraopolis


Oh yes, Coraopolis ... curious old town,
once wore a fine suit ... white shirt ...
tie, it was all so ... 'suitable'.... Well ...
that was until assumed harmonies
played on irony's farcical flute
and a tune too distant a key.

Appeased men once walked those now ...
worn ... threatened ... grieving old roads ...
it's a castigating view ...
they punish ... a sensible
eye ....

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
