Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Sordid Night
 

 
Down dark alleys lurk downtrodden
dirty men in homeless garb,
and the ladies in their fishnets,
holding children in their arms.
Seething stench of those not cared for;
those whose bodies bare more wounds
than a soldier's, on his deathbed,
but death does not come so soon.

Hurry, leave your 'prints behind,
run into the sordid night.

Lightbulbs glow alight, lewd, leering;
red as if to warn the people:
'Here is hell and hell will hold you
if you dare to leave the steeple'.

Hurry, leave your 'prints behind,
run into the sordid night.

Advanced adults all avoid this;
ignorance is bliss in theory.
If the mind allows a spark in,
stark shines light against the dreary.
These are brothers, sisters, parents,
but we're taught to pass them by.
Is this right, and are we truly
loving all of humankind?

Hurry, leave your 'prints behind,
run into the sordid night.
