Attention Span



Homeless veterans stacked like cordwood upon the city sidewalks
warriors sleeping on cement beds

Rats and roaches invade the schools
while insulation falls on lunch trays

Young men armed to their shiny gold teeth
all you are is all you know

Corporate suits hold black tie affairs
while sipping their chocolate martinis
and counting their bits of paper

"Margaret said the Hamptons are quite nice this time of year"
