Neighborhood

By Shannon H.

 

There was a parade in my neighborhood.

There were people kissing for joy

In my neighborhood.

There were rich people who had millions

And millions of dollars in my neighborhood.

I saw people with dark

Skin in my neighborhood.

I saw a tangled jump rope in my neighborhood.

I saw burns on people in my neighborhood.

I hear the sizzle from the BBQ

In my neighborhood.

People are silent

In my neighborhood.
