Confusion Clears the Street (poem)

Was early in the evening when a sound

Began to end from somewhere near the ground

Got up and down the stairs to where I found

To lighten darkness and this rhyme compound

-

Outside the entrance my well rounded flat

A wealth of beggars very calmly sat

Their tailored taters they began to pat

I cleanly knew old dirt now at my mat

-

Leave out of here don’t start the end with police

They clearly saw confusion upset peace

Their time had come to go for old release

I stopped to start my heart’s unsettled ease

-

An early late young neighbor starts to shout

Soon others wanted in to help them out

Here done I drift away toward my own rout

And try to settle some if not all doubt

Enjoy the craziness

Is he going mad? Or is the neighborhood bad? Interesting poem, Martin.
