What I Saw In The City

I would love to know what you think.


Every where I look I see
Degenerate humanity
Empty eyed they stare through me
If they even look up from their screens.

Gone are smiles or a friendly Hi
For strangers as they pass you by
Too boxed in by their own lives
Distracted by their living lies.

Lost in their world of self importance
Shamefully hiding their impotence
Wearing a veil of ignorance
And imaginary grievances.
