A City Of Sin Poem by Matt Starking

A City Of Sin

Rating: 3.2

a City of sin
when will thou go clean
a foolish society
in an archaic city
full of vanity
a city without conscience
full of violence
greediness and selfishness
why should there be a city
without justice and fairness
the rich over the poor
blood do they devour
life becomes sore
her daughters are whore
how can there exist
such a city
if goodness is banish
then we are all finish
why won't they perish
in this city they cherish

well captured with the nets of poetry. Very good rhyming, it was not forced. The idea of not punctuating was influenced by the flow, I guess. Good job done fellow. But can there be any city without sin when it is being ruled by humans? Hmm! Very rhetorical
