Riffing on comments about what we should do with those who don’t fit into the shelters or don’t want to.
Some think there is a place where the
Unwanted should flock to –
Some Neverland type fantasy
Away from precious view.
A place we pay to keep the bums
Corralled with their own kind.
Perhaps Peter Pan rules said slums
In their demented minds.
Did they learn that from Captain Hook?
I bet he’s in disguise –
Some white-collar conniving crook
With cold, deceiving eyes,
Lurking around, spreading the word,
Peter Pan is alive
But will need to grow his herd
If he wants to survive.
Perhaps some believe Captain Hook –
Their journey should lead “there” –
But if they took a deeper look
They’d see death was the “Where?”
