Burning City (standard:poetry, 121 words)
Author: David SynnAdded: Jun 03 2015Views/Reads: 700/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A social commentary on modern civilization.
 



Burning City 

Sketchy looking things going down on the east end of town. They're
bringing in the drugs from the bordering west. Smoking gun in hand, the 
policeman stands above the body of someone's beloved pet. Bulletproof 
vest. 

Kings, queens and juvenile teens spend all their time cooking
methamphetamines. Veins shot from hypodermics. No time to rest. Baby 
needs to be fed. The welfare of the community is measured by the digits 
on a check. 

No need to feed on this disease. The city is burning. Fighting to take
back the rights we never had. Illusion of freedom. Loosing sight is 
easy when justice is blind. Sitting here safely behind my keyboard, 
waiting for the day they kick down my door.
