A Town of Riled Dreams

This is our ugly town –
place with its own share
of mildly offensive white
men & women –
rattle coffee spoons in a
cafe –
A repeat of nothing
happening irks sour kids
as they kick against it –
slew of gossip leaks out –
loosened by every bored
tongue –
Churches claim
community rites over all
those other acts of faith –
Ugly towns loathe their
residents –
hatred – easy
to vent ‘bout neighbours
in a town of riled dreams
