 once upon a time


Misty rain, it keeps falling, falling

upon Lost hopes and dreams.

 scrawling inside crumbling homes.

It's a hard acid rain,caused by greed.


We all played a part, small or large.

The misty rain descends, battering lives.

Nothing to shield or protect us.

livelihoods swept the way of all

promises built on shaky ground.


Our lives are lost in the storm

drains of our cities.

This misty rain gonna keep on falling,.

No way out. No easy solutions only poverty

amid what's called third world living.


We grabbed at straws and ended up holding

the short straw of no hope.

All we got is a misty rain and 

its  gonna keep on falling
