The Entropy of Community

It begins with apathy.

Then turns to destiny.

First, the wages leave, then the pride.

What follows is sex, drugs, and crime.

It is the end of home.

The natural progress

of widespread social regress

introduces the guns and gangs,

where empty love hangs

outside the broken walls of home.

Another murder on the streets,

another cocaine rage beats,

but the real cancer is in the way we think.

Don't deny the mind the right to speak

the light of human sovereignty.

The body bags are getting full.

The future has left school.

This world is getting smaller, now.

Will we teach ourselves how

to rebuild a home?
