A wee poem.

Look away
It's not pretty

What is clung to
Distracts so many

Consumed
Not by fire

Flooded
Not by water

Battered
Not by gust

Vacant
Not desolate

Its all before you
Long ignored

Many without a clue
Underneath what's adored

Restoring what was lost
Many have failed in trying

Questioning how to escape
This constant dying
