The Peoples' Reply

A Gala on a city rooftop
5 stories high
City Museum

South West Winds blow
from the North East North
to shake Foundations
in the streets

Market Street
Downtown "In the Lou"
High end lofts
Jack tailed brew

Facades of history
hold their own beat
But we got the rhythms
of the streets

Gothic Era
Stone Masons
1780's carving tools
shape stone true
Outlasting time's revenues

Water house prices
ain't no Price-Waterhouse
they don't appreciate
the old masters clout

Two faced deals
are tragically hip
if they don't protect
the rent seeking rich

Bricklayers know
Mortar bridges
tuck and point
smooth finish edges
 
Jackhammer's 
vibrate with shock waves
The Street department
know's how to use them
and they  aren't safe

And certainly no substitute
for farmers hands
that tend the crops
and til the land

Stone mason tools
require nuance
not jackhammer fools
skilled hands aren't pawns

Fresh water flows
through Aqua ducts
Placing precision cap stones
requires human touch

Milestone Markers
aren't for Sale
Not even to Corporate
executives
who rob and steal

Lucy's Lumberjack's
no Hispanic slave
He's got her back
Best behave

Bright
Red light Green light
is no mystery to us
High voltage corners
cause corrosive rust

Child toy makers
don't know crossed wires
but Dangerous gangs know
they cause C-Corp fires

C-Suite Dealers
play musical chairs
they think their $ money
will protect their heirs

Chalk lined sidewalks
could be children's games
but in this climate
they're not the same

Sure fire stock tips
hidden vacation homes
offshore accounts aliased
are no protection 'Holmes'

Fire Extinguishers
aren't laser Discs
Irradiation devices
are dangerous hits

Polyvinyl speaker boxes
are a Cowards tool
men who hide behind them
are abject fools

Black market tails
are ghost like Runners
the streets don't like
Copper wire burner's

A Fulbright Scholar
told an associate
'some like to 'taze for trades'
and watch pain parades
in high SNUFF grades

The rich man's favored
fallacy
is not knowing when to quit

His chest's puffed up
with Entitlements
Easy targets don't know hits

The People know
North, South, East, & West
their tricks and traps
233 years of slavery, NO MORE
It's the Old boy networks
last call for alcohol

Jet Fuel Cool
has "flash lit" ends
"To Kill a Mockingbird"
Good 'reeds' my friend

A Photojournalist
took high caliber photo's
of 'clever' you
Would you like
copies too?






 

PHOTOGRAPHERS, PHOTOS, FILM, AND PHOTOJOURNALISTS, AND THEIR SUBJECTS ARE WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD, LENSES, FOCUS, APERTURE SIZE AND SPEED SPEAK OF TECHNIQUE AND THE ATMOSPHERIC PROPERTIES OF COLOUR, LIGHT, AND REFLECTIONS, REAL FILM RETAINS THE NEGATIVE, THE SPACES BETWEEN, A TRUE ART WHOSE AUTHENTICITY IS  PROVABLE ON FILM....THE ART OF PICKING YOUR SUBJECT, I LIKE CANDID PHOTO'S THE BEST, THEY CAPTURE MORE THAN THEIR 'SUBJECTS', THEY REVEAL MOTION, EMOTION AND THE 'FEEL' OF A SCENE, I'VE NEVER MASTERED THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY, AND HAVE ALWAYS APPRECIATED THE SKILL AND THE RARE 'GENIUS' OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER
