Car fumes rising in the cloudy sky

The couple next door are arguing again

There are dogs barking outside

I can hear the traffic outside

Angry drivers in their cars

Furiously slamming their hands on their horns

 

I look out of the window

And only I can seem to see

The ugliness of this beautiful world

 

I hear the pigeons on the phone lines

I open the window and breathe in the traffic pollution

I can see the blackened walls of the house opposite us

I can hear an argument between two people

On opposite ends of the road

I can feel the chill of the bleak winter

 

I look out of the window

And only I can see

The ugliness of this beautiful world

And the beauty of this ugly world
