Mother is crying,
these aren't tears of joy
they're tears of despair

the kind meant to wash away
visions of pain, drug addiction,
prostitution, Inequality, homelessness 
& division.

The haves complain about crime
the have nots live beyond their means
to avoid the broad brush of criminality.

It looks like Mother will be crying for a
while I pray for her and well. 
May her tears serve their purpose.
