ALL THOSE PAVEMENTS

By Ryan Quinn Flanagan

ALL THOSE PAVEMENTS

THAT THERE'S A PARKING LOT!
SEE ALL THOSE PAVEMENTS WORKIN' TOGETHER?
I BET YOU THOUGHT CONCRETE WAS A PERSON,
DID ALL THIS BY HIS LONESOME!
AND THAT GRASS, YOU DON'T SMOKE IT
UNLESS YOU WANT THE PARKINGS ALL COMIN'
OUT FUNNY, CROSS- EYED AND SEEIN' THE GOOD LORD
IN TECHNICOLOUR.
LOOK THERE AT THAT CRACK!
DON'T EVER LET ANYONE TELL YOU PARKING LOTS
DON'T SMILE, 'CAUSE THEY DO.
WE MAY BE THREE FLOORS UP, BUT OUR HUMBLE
REVERENCE IS SEEN BY ALL.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK, BOY!
ALL THOSE DIFFERENT TYPES OF STONE WORKIN' TOGETHER.
THAT'S THE ONLY WAY WE'RE GONNA SURVIVE.
