Summer in the city

by bernardtwindwil

I drive toward the city at dawning

Due to the hour, I'm yawning

Twenty miles out I am at a dead stop

I wallowing in polluted slop

Cities contain the centers for health

A massive agglomeration of wealth.

My alternatives are few out in the boonies

I am forced to deal with all of the loonies

Oh look, I sense that the cars are creeping

The joy inside from this has me weeping

I can't wait for this ordeal to be over

Then I can return to my trees and clover

This is lovely :) I never realized how much I didn't like living in a city because I never actually acknowledged that I always lived somewhere smaller.

It's not until you are forced to encounter all city life has that you appreciate country life. Reminds me of trips to the city with my parents.
