All that's left

adobe shacks

roofs caved in

so bats attract


Old rusted cars

one Cadillac

desert reclaims

cactus comes back


Adobes built

on a cotton patch

but fields dried up

folks up and packed


Dreams left in ruins

the shame is that

the future's gone

so is the past.

I like this dk. Rhythm and rhyme. Last verse - no rhyme but rhythm - perfect finish

Great sense of loss and stripping back. Enjoyable and authentic !
