Detroit Faces Bankruptcy

July 18, 2013 at 5:30 pm (Commentary, Poetry) (, , )

Detroit is the largest U.S. city to declare bankruptcy

showing that the debt monster suffers not from narcolepsy

but in a creditors’ zombie apocalypse

where fortunes crumble like broken sticks

it goes forth seeking whom it may devour

and cares not the day or hour

things don’t look so good in the hood

They’re melting tires to make Yorkshire pud’

From Motown to ghost town

things are going down

like a broken record in an age of iPod

time to pay the Piper in the land of Nod.
