Smiley Face

I have observed how you tower over our city,
Standing tall just like a proud soldier.
You always have that smile on our face, day and night!
You make me sick!
Watching like a sleepless guard dog, yet with that forever smiling changeless expression!
What do you have to smile about anyway?
You can see all the crime and corruption in our streets.
You see the innocent being raped, drug pushers, and gang wars;
You see the homeless looking for shelter and the hungry digging for scraps
