House on a Hill

A place on a hill

in a foreign land.

A place poor but with life

beautiful hill

views to kill

in a place a wealthy man wouldn’t get caught.

A place where steel bars won’t hold you

in

but hold others out.

A place on a hill

where the wealthy would like to retire

were it not for all the people they hire

to do the low end jobs

which make them their fortunes.

A place on a hill

they would like torn down into a high rise

to get rid of the lives of whose size

is nothing compared to their building

and get rid of the personalities

who inhabit this place

on the hill.
