sin city graffiti ditty



downtown stubble rubs gritty

tenement windows broken

night escort working pretty

pimp keeps tight grip on token


street addicts living nitty

homeless die for opiates

poor men don’t want no pity

just need to beat jobless rates


how survive stinking city

urban education rules

alley thugs share thieves’ kitty

gangstas teach in dropout schools
