It's Everywhere - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Free style walkin shoes make bare feet obsolete.
latchkey kids dumpster diving to eat
Cop on their beat turns up the heat
on Front Street.
A prison cell awaits you
if you steal that treat
It's everywhere,
it's everywhere

Destitution is an institution
The verdict is in favor
of the prosecution
No stay of execution
It's everywhere
It's everywhere
Take a look around you it's everywhere

Mom on the skids,
flies signs with her kids.
working her regular beat
One eye always stays open
there'll be no sleep
Her penance to keep.
Wrapped in torn blankets on down n out street
Tonights weather forecast
Nobody cares
Take a look around you
it's everywhere
Super groupers sell us this seasons hair.
Their tickets got punched by plastic millionaires
Peace and love on the far horizon.
Dusk settles in,
Bloody moon risin.

Bone-deep in for the kill.
Can you feel the chill
as they come in for the kill
It's an epidemic,
it's everywhere
Hit the ground
Shylock coming by
to collect his fleshy pound
Mac Fancy jobs aren't waiting on you
Boss man work you salt silly
til your lips turn blue.

Scat Master orders you 'get down on your knees'
What's his ain't yours still you're beggin please
Make you shout to the devil
one aberrant prayer.
Take a look around you
it's everywhere
