CITIES LARGE AND SMALL/poets united midweek motif - city

CITIES LARGE AND SMALL

Cities large and small
Gathering places
Hurry up
Places to go
People to see

Everything is by the clock
Urban sprawl
You must fly over
To see it all

I wonder 
It is no place for animals
It does not support life
It robs us of our humanity

Crazy making
Hustle bustle
Never ending
Like a great ant mound
Structure for termites

Intersections
A giant grid
Hold on
Don’t give up

The light turns red
Stay on the sidewalk
No place to roam
The sun sets on glass and steel
