NaPoWriMo 2013 Day Twenty-Nine

NaPoWriMo 2013
Day Twenty-Nine

THE GRASS IS GREENER
The grass is greener shorter than before
foreigners come and go the seasons change
anger consumes the abused - boils over
undercover officers roam the streets.

Treat or trick she says dipping his pocket
skyrocket taking his bus fare back home
homesick as a suicidal student
entering the lions den for the first time.

Timepleasers sheltering under the trees
essentially in the shadows dealing
lingering there no longer than they need
needlework inked in the prison workshop

Shop work wages won't pay the rent boys rent
rents his clothes plants trees - the grass is greener.
