City Life

Relentless pounding of the drum
Sleepless nights, spiral sun
Broken waves, crooked shore
The pan-handler cackling for more

Hissing cats crying home
Rotten dog wandering alone
Shattered glass, littered lives
Shelter never, covered eyes

Mumbled yells echo from the alley
Helpless blasts, death count tally
Sewer vents, city fog
Blue lights, another hog.
