Liberty and Justice For All


Summer afternoon
in Modesto
tramps piss in
a parking lot
in broad daylight
by Bank of America,
no shame to
their game.

There in
alleyways
they scavenge in
garbage bins
for morsels before
maggots do.

Tattered spirits
draped in rags
scrape along
sidewalks shared
with solemn stiffs
in grey suits and
shiny shoes.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
