Lake street

there is something about those
nauseating sodium lights
saturating the night
with their vanilla orange glow

it causes the scum of the earth
to ooze out and materialize
polluting the environment
with their acrid
dime store cologne
unsettling street-side babble
and gutter based entitlement

in this enabling society
i put the accountability
on the politically correct
and their erect
self righteous rhetoric
speaking peace with
one side of their mouth
and spitting curses
out of the other

but that’s lake street
full of reality
hypocrisy
and self deceit
