In the City

In the city
In the alley
Where the stray dogs roam
Run!
By the streetlamp
Run!
In the moonlight
Quickly, softly the stray dogs roam

In the city
In the alley
Where the homeless reside
Ssh!
By the fire
Ssh!
In the silence
Wordlessly, fearfully the homeless reside

In the city
Near the alley
Where the passers-by ramble
Hey!
By the crosswalk
Hey!
In the avenue
Loudly, eagerly the passers-by ramble

In the city
Near the alley
Where the cars do ride
Screech!
By the curb
Screech!
In the headlights
Boldly, impatiently the cars do ride

In the city
By the alley
The stray dogs roam
The homeless reside
The passers-by ramble
The cars do ride
In the city
By the alley,
Loneliness will live
Laughter will thrive
And for this night and many
All is alive
