CITIES LARGE AND SMALL/poets united midweek motif – city



Cities large and small

Gathering places

Hurry up

Places to go

People to see


Everything by the clock

Urban sprawl

You must fly over

To see it all


I wonder

It is no place for animals

It does not support life

It robs us of our humanity


Crazy making

Hustle bustle

Never ending

Like a great ant mound

Structure for termites



A giant grid

Hold on

Don’t give up


The light turns red

Stay on the sidewalk

No place to roam

The sun sets on glass and steel
