The power is shut down in the hood
but wild parties glow the sky across the bay.
We cannot live to survive.
We earn to survive and yearn for life.
Pay cheques from the rich
give weekly stability to the poor
and the poor can save little for rainy days.
But, the rainy days come and the poor stay poor.
Children go to over or under funded schools
without a middle meeting ground.
And the grass over the fence is rich and green
and the grass over the fence is ignored.
