i look out over charm city

to my left a city of lights

to my right a void in the night

the city sirens are calling

another persons plight out there

someone is falling

fighting for their life

fog bellows over the city

its shroud steals away the light

someone’s being robbed

someone’s losing their life

the sirens drown out their cries

the politicians smile with deceiving eyes

just another day in harm city

chalk up another sleepless night

so many families fractured and grieving

NO END IN SIGHT
