My city is a Woman
with steel lining her spine

My city is a Woman
who won’t give you a penny without a dime

My city is a Woman
who rages like a hurricane in July

My city is a cruel Woman
with a forked tongue to spread her lies

They say I should take pride in my city
so I ask them Why

For how can I love a Woman
with snake eyes.

It was originally an assignment for school but I enjoyed writing it. This piece really helped open my eyes to where I live
