For those suburbanites not born there

Posted to Action Poetry




There were a few reasons to get out of urbanity.
Many people could not stay in city keeping sanity.
Those who left the concrete slabs of profanity,
Those who left the gray drabs of "profundity",
They say let us not mistake city for all humanity.
True True, suburbs mirror suburbs mirror conformity.
Also the flight from the ghetto allows family ability.
Perhaps excitement and culture sacrificed for security.
The earth, the earth one big spinning day glow geopolity.
