A Pile of Junk It Has Become

When you read this you can probably substitute los angeles for the place you dwell unless you are fortunate to live in a place where nature and loving and respect still dwell. Of course not everybody is as I have written and there are many beautiful places to visit in this city of Angels still...

Center of.....

A'shopping I did go the other day
I ventured out into the city's heart
Well centre is a better word to use

The city called Los Angeles
I wonder why
City of Angels
I must deny
Maybe those Light Beings left
Long ago
When craziness became
The king of games

Civility!!!!!

People push and shove
Nary a sorry or excuse me
Old, young and middle aged
Forgotten they have civility


Perhaps they have lost their way
Stupified by dead food and drink
Maybe their days and nights
In front of television screens are spent
Blasting out nonsensical themes


On their mobiles they gabble away
Or busy texting who knows who
Forgetting to look up and see
As into your face they walk

Pile of Junk

All over town this can be seen
I wonder why a place
So fair and just
Has turned into a
Pile of junk


Cars whiz by at crazy speeds
Without consideration
Watch out my friends
Or end up you will
In a coffin made of wood


Where are you going
So very fast
Ignoring all who cross your path
Old and young they flee from you
Too frightened even to say boo

Right-ness

Not me
I stop and say
Mind what you are doing
Be careful take heed


They laugh
Make fun of me they do
Give me the finger ho ho ho!


It matters not
I stand for peace and right-ness
To be placed in the world for all to see
So perfect change can come about


And it can be

Sometimes jewels that sparkle are found in the midst of rubble. As for me, SoCal is the seat of superficiality and spectacle. I'll gladly rest here in the civility of the north's environment. Come see us anytime.

Yeah it's sounds typical of what life has become in most cities,
one big rat race, and all too often civility is forgotten in the rush.
Great article my friend.

No time nowadays for civility and respect. City life is same everywhere I know one who is always talking on his cell phone. I know he has nothing much to do but I sometimes wonder who is he talking to! I too lament where we are headed for, Carolina - siva

When people feel powerless they loose empathy for others and seek distraction , cell phones,tv, etc, etc. No excuse though.

agreed, but people can only empower themselves...no one else can do it for them...only inspire them to do for themselves..

So true...larger the city, smaller the hearts and lesser the time to love and respect. There is such a marked difference in city life and village life, almost like that between an innocent child and an arrogant adult.
