On The Run

by Geneo

escape to the ghetto
escape to the inner city
escape from the best in suburbia

from plastic cards flashing good up-
dated credit
from tall beach home in Miami
ftom rich stock market that will never
never fail

escape to treacherous bleak streets,
where survival indicative of true gut instinct

escape to hot pitiful dry days, cool
frightening quiet nights

escape to loose comer that you abandoned
long ago, after being recruited to play by
tight rules

escape from business person luncheons
and cocktail toast
escape the Wall Street Journal
and money Market Fund

escape to new shanty in South Africaland
escape to Harlem becoming part of the
old renaissance
escape to Watts and fulfill broken promises

escape from traffic jams in late hour p.m.
escape gold watch and diamond ring
escape crowded malls and personal signature

escape to good white pasteurized milk
escape to 16 Oz. carbonated drink
escape to fried chicken on Saturday, Sunday,
