A city in ruins

Completely in shambles

The roads filled with holes

The buildings rotting within themselves

Overrun by inner city youth

Having ghetto tendencies

They wear bandanas and baggy jeans

You can hear the urban beat—

Banging in the streets

See the man begging for money

Apparently he has no place to go

See the mother and her child

They are waiting for the bus in the cold

Do you see the city?

Indeed she is alive

Unlike the fallen city of Rome

But is not appreciated so

And is often overlooked.
