... Dog God 8hate ... Dog God 8hate Male, 99, United States (3/9/2014 8:18:00 PM)

Unbawdy Bowery

Who else knows those lordly looks,
those grand but hidden views
as I, I in such a bemoaning walk
and down to 30 Bowery, that ...
the sacred old vicinage now profaned.
It's horrid betrayal, supplanting
the old New England Hotel
and with such/this contemptible stray.
Modern concepts assumed sophic
but dull ... void ... an affront
to a sensible mind.

Stephen Foster lived there in 1864,
but alas, shameful humanity has lost
their cause, and ... moving on and on
at what's inimical - their disguised
doltish quest.

Sacred magnificence, washed away,
vanquished by muzzy-eyed
inventors, they in their duped
circumstance, how they render
hallowed roads
ragged.

Stephen Foster lived there,
for god sake, where's his
venerable old mansion ...

that, the old ...
New England Hotel?

    My Great Great Grandfather Ovid would have loved you. So rhythmic!
