My Poem of the Day

(09/03/14)

Coming or Going©

Today

Driving through my neighborhood

I saw

For Sale Signs

Open House Signs

Moving Signs

And

Yard Sale Signs

Everyone is Coming

Everyone is Going

In talking to friends and neighbors

I’ve come to find

That

Their kids are now going to private school

So now even the students are leaving

It’s a sign of the times

Overcrowding

At

Home

And

At

School

No more comfort

So we have to make our own

What’s good for some

Is bad for others

There are somethings that not even

A

Pretty flowerbed

A fresh coat of paint

Block Parties in the summer

Community yard sales

Yankee Swaps in December

And

Good neighbors

Can fix

So tell me

Are you coming or going
