It's Everywhere - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Free style walkin shoes make bare feet obsolete.
latchkey kids dumpster divin to eat
Cop on their beat turns up the heat on the street.
A prison cell awaits you if you steal that treat
It's everywhere, it's everywhere
Destitution is an institution
The verdict came in for the prosecution
No stay of execution
It's everywhere
It's everywhere
Take a look around you it's everywhere

Mom's flies a sign with her kids
works her regular beat
One eye stays open
there'll be no sleep
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 is risin.

Bone-deep in for the kill.
Can you feel the chill
It's everywhere

Hit the ground
smell the sound
Shylock will be by
to collect his fleshy pound
Mcfancy jobs are waiting for you
Boss'll work your 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
