Proper Warning; Proper Mourning

the waves come crashing in
contaminated by hatred and sin
the dirt and sand will cover the streets
rocks and water will demolish our greed
ink blotted letters will smear
one without a home will shed a tear
addresses will be replaced by faces
faces will be posters of ones erased.

makeshift temples will be seen
holy water will run like rain
a broken cross will have its shadow
talk to a higher due to this battle
old mementos will be parished
memories of old times are tarnished
missing family members scream for help
all i can do is walk this street all by myself.

communication is deceased like the bodies on the corner
another one passes away do to dehydration and hunger
throw this one by the wall like the rest that have passed
chant for help but don't know if it will last
America has such a short attention span
will they not care or will they reach out their hand
regardless of what they do they probably won't help me
i'm still a citizen don't degrate and call me a refugee.
