The City


The city is a living, breathing being
who surfs the high waves of luxury,
on topless sports car, roaring laughs,
speeding through streets and alleys,
indulging a minute of happiness.

The city has a seamless border
that's never crossed.

The city is a suffering, suffocating being
who's lost in the abyss of poverty,
bleeding from a gunfight wound,
and vomiting into sewers soon to be
found floating face down in misery.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
