Benign be beneath the City

Oh city, I can never admire
Built upon the greenery’s crushed desire
Decades of toil bears no fruit
Rich reached the height and poor still in bare foot
Dreams in cement walls buried as the bricks
Stolen from earth and burned with your tricks
No tales to tell after everyone dies
Cities you build to break all ties
Expands like a serpent that swallows human kind
Where you kill your own and your law is blind
Thousands of colors that green had sheltered
You enjoy the fragile moments, greed has captured
Mockery with gardens, parks and the zoo
All those unreal claiming to be true.
