Outrage

Come join me in my outrage in a city with a bus tunnel
that belongs in the world of the rich and famous
A sports stadium to be envied
We have homeless people living and dying on our streets

Am I the only one who is so hurt that my anger permeates my every word?

Do I alone know that beautifying our buildings while citizens are sleeping in doorways
is like putting on make-up without washing your face-
-or putting on your suit without taking a shower?

Since a chain is only as strong as its weakest link
A city is only as rich as its poorest citizens.

We still have people dying in our streets.

How rich a home can our city be?
