Welcome to nowhere and

the lies of Emerald City

those for sale signs

and sparkling lights

none the disguised so pretty .

Termite houses of encircled golden fences

uplifted hope by scenic waste

as deputies and directors take the census.

A crater of abuse and theft

at the top of the listed rules

the early resided have never left

the town of two hundred fools.

This is home, a paradise to another

contemplation of a new horizon

is a horse of a different color .

To work they go

traveling a hundred miles and over

to escape the revenue service

and the chance of a foreclosure .

Another building

In the midst of larson,

burnt down again

by amphetamine arson .

The faithful sailors

on the river of invisible shores

work with the worries of other men

to come knocking on their doors.

Who is true ?

Who has slept with who?

She is growing up too fast

the apple has fallen way off the tree

so, who's child is that?

Welcome to nowhere and

the lies of Emerald City,

those for sale signs

and sparkling lights

none the disguised so pretty..
