(this is my first poem posted here...hope you like it!*grins nervously*)    
  
         Moon Junction

Follow me to Moon Junction--

where the moon is
always full
and the masqueraders
never stop dancing
where the poor work their hardest
and never get rewarded
and the rich do nothing
and always get rewarded
where melancholy music fills
the smoky night air
and the sounds sweep through
the empty souls
where children dance in the dirty streets
calling their mommas' names
and the mommas stand on the side
hoping, praying for some kind of future
where ramshackle, worn-down factories
lean into each other like tired skeletons
and war-torn trees and buildings
slowly rot away with each passing night
where lovers hold to empty promises
knowing nothing is forever
and people walk down memory lane
with closed minds and empty hearts
where hopeless students lack
the want to learn
and helpless teachers lack
the need to teach
where the needs of millions
are continuously ignored
and the cries of many
fall on deaf ears....

follow me to Moon Junction--
where the moon is
always full
and the masqueraders
never stop dancing.

BobbyCat-
Welcome to our family of friends.
Your writing has some wonderful
descriptive phrases - I liked

'where ramshackle, worn-down factories
lean into each other like tired skeletons'

Vivid image.

WoW!  I enjoyed every word of it, there was no way I could have stopped reading in the middle of it even if I wanted to!  Great job and a wonderful poem to enter with.  So welcome to the family and I hope to read more soon!

 Just be glad I'm not your child! *evil grin*
