Another City Street

Polka dots of chewed gum on the sidewalk,
Rejected and forgotten on the street,
Picked up carelessly by those on the block,
Lead on by worn shoes housing weary feet.
The pavement’s pattern, tattooed on its face,
Screams ‘pollution’ from its dirty grey eyes,
But the crowds moving at their hurried pace
Hush and mute the mothering sidewalk’s cries.
Orphans grinded into the concrete blocks,
Sticky tears for God’s ruined creation,
Unseen by the mindless that move in flocks,
Their blindness sweeping across the nation.
Oh, how humans continue their descent,
Their downfall documented on the cement.
