The Dream of Sleep

SleepISAHumanRight

A Light in the Commons

Illumines a Truth

Entropy of ordinance

Makes for horrid experience

 

Miles of empty real estate

Heated for the plumbing

Souls shiver on sidewalks

Denied legal bedding

 

Shattered Realities

And Neighborly Angst

Breed environment of Fear

No politician will stand against

A cadre of neighbors

Riddled . . . Scared

 

Enigma how the riddle gets unraveled

But folks are being strangled

And deprived of their dreams

 

Public Education

Fear Remediation

It’s our only Hope

Teaching All how to cope

 

“R-2-D-2,” Four, Five, Six

PBA tries to hex

With their war on the poor

And You and I have the Fix

 

A Light in the Commons

Illumines a Truth

Society needs to be soothed

 

Nightmares run rampant

When you’re forced to the street

Where the only dream you have

Is

The Dream Of Sleep
