All People Matter

A Poem Called Planning

Here is a poem I wrote called Planning—

The town was marketed

Before streets and homes were built.

Homes were finished

Before roads and sewers were built.

People moved in with kids

Before schools were built.

And people wonder why what they have

Is not what they want.

  1. Love it.

    My addition:

    Trees were scraped away
    Before parks were built.
