Look

Do you see? Whats happening all around.
The lady with the paper and pen adding up her order.
Groceries or pay the electric,in what order?

Did you notice the farm is no longer there.
It was sold and is now a strip mall of clothing and other ware.
Also on that land,a coffee shop,and a barber to get your hair chopped.

Did you notice very few smiles?
People hunched over as they walked for miles.
Very few laughter,and hardley and stores.
That sell music anymore.

Look around the changes,are not for the good
The internet has taken things,were people should.
Also the economy its now a game of ifs.
If i pay this bill today,we won't be able to get gas.
The glasses Hailey needs will have to wait.
We need to buy groceries and medicine for kate.

Look and see what happening.
They are around you to.
And maybe if we all look.
There are things we can do.
