“Not Even A Sigh”

''Not Even A Sigh''

Living in the trenches,
Where people just stare.
Life’s dangling branches,
Have all become bare.

No leaves, or fruits,
Showing for its troubles.
A trunk, some roots,
As its life crumbles.

People walking by,
All look the other way.
Not even a why,
It’s just another day.

Living in the trenches,
I see people begging.
What horrible wretches,
I hear the rich bragging.

Down deep, a hole,
I hear them all screaming.
So dark, and cold,
Wishing I were dreaming.

The tree is no more,
All decayed and withered.
Rotten to the core,
As life has wintered.

Still people walk by,
Just look the other way.
Not even a sigh,
It’s just another day.. .
