written by: Anne G
Indestructible city of glass, steel and stone
built on Gneiss bedrock, millennia old
Towers that scrape azure blue skies
spires seen reaching heavenly heights
Implacable giants of industry and life
monuments to mankind's ingenuity and minds
Treasures of culture bequeathed by the world
civilizations in trust, memorialized in time
Empire City, Liberty's isle
Tower of Freedom, innocence lost
Indestructible Gotham, home to the world
mega metropolis - Manhattan, New York
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
