Chalice of Indifference: Welcome to Baltimore

Chalice of Indifference

Welcome to Baltimore

written by: Sunmy Brown



Walking the bustling streets of Urban America
Packed like sardines in a cramped tin can
Inhaling the acrid scents of acidity
lining the alleyways of rotten waste
filth and acrimony lingering in the air

“Watcha looking at?”
“Do ya have a problem?”
“Get the f*ck outta my face?”
“Can you spare me some change?”
A lifetime of hurt, neglect, and pain

Dirty politicians pilfering taxpayers
Headlining the 6 o’clock news
In their swanky and shiny suits
Underneath a cloak of deception and greed
A City can’t catch a break

Babies being born, babies shot, babies dying
God help the City of Baltimore
Where are the Saviors?
Come take me outta my misery
I’m on my knees praying for a miracle.
Come Jesus Come.
