Rag Town - Poem by Aldo Kraas

Rag Town
Rag Town
Rag Town
Is just like any other town
The
Rag Ladies
Walk in the streets of
Rag Town
In a beautiful
Summer weather
In the shops of
Rag Town
You see the
Rag Ladies
Working in the stores
Also
Selling their food, clothes, and groceries
To the local
Rag Ladies
Who come to shop in their stores
In
Rag Town
In
Rag Town
You will find some
Indian
Restaurants where
Rag Ladies
Work as waitress serving tables
There are
Mosques in
Rag town
So the
Rag
Men can bring their
Rag Ladies in
If you go to
Rag Town
You will see the
Rag Ladies
Wearing rags and you won't be able to miss them
Because
They will
Come out from all the directions straight to you
And you will find houses in
Rag Town
Just like any other part of the city
The sun always shines in
Rag Town
Rag Town
Rag Town
Saturday is the day for
The
Rag Ladies to do the house work
And to do the laundry
So they can have clean rags to wear
During the week the dirty rags piled up in the laundry baskets
Until
Saturday comes
Sunday is the time for the
Rag Ladies in
Rag town to have a rest
Rag Ladies
Have to serve their husbands if they have one
That is their duty to do
And when the night comes in
Rag town
All the
Rag Ladies
Settle in for the night
Because when monday comes the
Rag Ladies
Have to go to work
In order to support their families and themselves
Rag Town
Rag Town
Rag Town
Yes I been there myself
While
Rag Town
Was quiet like a ghost at night
I walked the streets
When I reached the end of the streets
I looked up
And I saw that beautiful sky
So clear like a jewel
Rag Town
Rag Town
Rag Town
I just love coming back to
Rag Town
For a visit
I just keep coming back and back again to Rug Town
But to live In
Rag Town
Would be impossible for me
Because
I am not so used to
Rag Town
And I feel much better where I live
Because
Rag town is
So run down
And
I don't think I have to give any explanation do I?
