Blank Verse about a Blankety Blank Town

We drove cross state through rainy, cloudy skies
and traveled through the run down neighborhoods
of the city raised up and then cast down
by crony capitalists in big board rooms
who left at the end of the day for waterfront homes
and ultimately abandoned the city to destitution —
bombed out houses and garbage in the yards
and victims left without the resources
to turn things around for them and their kids.
We traveled ‘cross the state to care for our dog
who is destined to get a more compassionate deal
than all those humans left with only prayers to heal.
