The Streets Are Uneasy

The Streets Are Uneasy long poem

Photo by giasco

in the dark of night you maybe looking for a fight the streets are uneasy
one word to the wise one must never compromise to listen to twisted lies
was a D.J. junkie from back in the day spinning records blasting features
cosmic twister as an Alice Cooper going a bit super duper fresh none better
as light as a feather hearing none better don’t call me late for dinner you sinner
no soon a winner playing all those slots this homeboy do think a lot

Winter is here again Oh Lord keep your eyes on the road your hands upon the wheel
peeps trying to get food stamps, cash assistance & S.S.I. getting tough out there
pulling up a chair for reason by which to care bowling for dollars down to the wire
make no mistake let’s call it fate some youg G is working at the greasy spoon
Everyday new challenges are being met so don’t forget the moral of its delemna
Society is blind you see so i devout myself to poetry to set me free

There’s word on the street some folks giving me the creeps got bad vibrations
Spinning out records with the O’jay’s, Smokey & The Temptations a host of graduation
got to stay on point with a fat joint pulling down the vapors with a brand new noise
but if you flirt with fire your going to be burning it up with its fullest desire
coming down to the wire you maybe a gun for hire or calling men a liar

Streets short poem

Homeless vets fill our streets dealing with addictions they cannot beat Stand on street corners begging for food Often standing with broken down shoes It makes me sad to see what happened to them Returned home to anger and hate

Uneasy Calm

Uneasy Calm short poem

Perceptibly all’s normal sans any grave concern Yet something’s amiss at total loss to discern Prospects and delivery in unanimity converged Still truest of the bliss never clearly emerged Amity, bonds & loyalty all but there so to say But

These streets

These streets short poem

Faded prima donnas pave the way God’s drunk and moves with a swagger Another kid bites a burning bullet today He never stops to stare or linger Proven faithful lie their way to the altar Another lamb to bring to

Greying Streets

Greying Streets short poem

Greying streets whisper cold dust, a different time Their utterance echoes,carves on my glass mind. They hush a hymn so soft, it dangles like innocence, from an old child. I, an antique vase made to their design. Greying streets whisper,
