The City


The City was large and spacious
many even called it gracious
Buildings and its bosses sprout from everywhere
Supplying the workers with work and care

Parks lure visitors to its attractions a fun
Animals fill the city by the ton
People fill te city to help them and the city out
To have the life others want to learn about

However, the city can fool you
with its strong outward cohesiveness, it can trick you
Many people enter this city
Thinking their lives will be just like this city

But the people soon learned
That their lives were not cohesive
Since having a good social and work life
Is scarce within the city

People seemed to be fortified and shady
Like buildings after midnight
The sureity of having good services, friends, and acquaintences
Is of little avaliabillity everyday

The service in the city stinks like dung
since people seem to care only about themselves
I bet no one in the city knew
who committed suicide last week

When the city by appearence is wholly connected and open
The people are divided and fortified
Finding a good job and snack maybe very easy
But findng or making a friend or acquaintence is really difficult
The City is outwardly majestic
The City is outwardly cohesive
But Inwardly, the city lacks that alltogether
Which makes the city a dangerous place to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
