We live in cities

We live in cities with garbage piled high like mountains upon which homeless people sit like monarchs in their own world. We live in cities where bees attacking protesters are seen as witchcraft doled out by the opposition. We drool over cars that accommodate four despite their size and look down upon the Probox that looks like a shoebox but carries an exodus. We live in cities .

We live in cities where help comes from the most unexpected of places and dressed in rags. We live in cities where plastic bags are red flags but plastic bottles choke rivers. We live in cities with beautiful women who refuse to be fooled by the flaccid tools of sleazy men because they know they are worth more than one night stands and heartbreak. We live in cities of dreams where hard work and honesty are rewarded with bullets and shallow graves. We bleed for papers that ensure we secure steady jobs then spend the next years roaming the streets looking for employment in every avenue.We live in cities.

We live in cities.
