A Picture Speaks 


A statement of frustration

In doodles

Thumbing nose at institutions

In oodles

Institution’s blood

Boiling in curdles


 Rectangular window

 Human neglect and decay

Sharp defined squares frayed

Cobwebs having field day

Spiders having measured land’s lay

Resigned to careless hands born to betray   


Standing firm and proud

In colors sepia to blend not loud

Like a dog to a glowing lamp post-

Sacrilegiously reduced to a graffiti host

plus gouged crucified by square iron posts

note: a wall is a parent

graffiti – expressions of ungrateful children

steel window frame are hardships parents face in life’s journey
