Barren and cold
Its heart is steel
Its body concrete
Its fleas are human

    This poem captures well the 'heart' of New York. A place where the quest for material success has hardened the heart of humanity. A short poem with insight. Thanks for sharing. Please have a look at my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
