Newark Haiku's


Home sweet home...



Rough edges hiding

A poor man stuck in limbo

A city of bricks

Where dreams slowly die

Quicksand for the weak minded

There is no escape

Zombies roam the streets

Ravenous for their next fix

Ignorance is bliss

Fueled by resentment

Poverty breeding madness

Senseless killing sprees

Sticky fingers grasp

At invisible lifelines

False hope pushing dope
