Uncovering Cities

by Anthony Perdue

The sandstorm uncovers you

And in your nakedness

You reveal to me cities

The first is a simplicity

And after the people have created

Confusion and congestions

It becomes a complexcity

Now the people argue, fight, criticize and condemn

Creating an adverscity

This condition leads to crimes, corruptions and cruelties

Behold an atrocity

Erupting unceasingly

Finally, the elements respond

What remains is only a neccesscity

For survivors
