It's Everywhere - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Free style walkin shoes make bare feet obsolete.
latchkey kids dumpster divin to eat
Cops keeping a cold eye on front street
turning up the heat
lockdown awaits you
if you steal that treat
It's everywhere
it's everywhere

Destitution is an institution
The verdict is in favor
of the prosecution
No stay of execution
It's everywhere
It's everywhere
Mom begs with her kids
workin her regular beat
One eye stays open
there'll be no sleep
Her penance to keep.
black balled kids
flyin signs on the street
Wrapped in torn blankets on down n out street
Tonights weather forecast
Nobody cares
Take a look around you
it's everywhere

Super groupers sell us this seasons hair.
Their tickets got punched by plastic millionaires
dusk settles in on the far horizon
Bloody moon risin.
Bone-deep in for the kill.
Can't you feel the chill
what a bitter pill and
it's everywhere
Don't make a sound
when Shylock swings on by
to collect his fleshy pound
Mc Fancy jobs are waiting for you
bossman work your salt silly
til your lips turn blue
Scat Master orders you 'get down on your knees'

What's his ain't yours
still you're beggin please
makes you shout to the devil
one aberrant prayer
Take a look around you
it's everywhere
