River Street Urchins

River street urchins
The gutters are swelling
[Waiting] for the sky—you, I
To reach—the storm drains of joy.
Before we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain

River street urchins
Before we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain
River street urchins

Paupers oh, so giving, don't you know.
We'll queue in the streets
And pray to be free
Till we go
Before we let go.
We too will rain
On every official bank holiday parade:

Till we're free till we're free
Till we're free till we're free
Till we're free to go
We'll never clear-out:
Absorbing as every stain there might be.

I'll fabricate a new colour?
A rainbow's pot of gold…
One for just you and me!

An interesting write. But I did like the personalized colors of choice. Read mine - We the Unencumbered - Adeline
These words are very thoughtful. Till we're free, till we're free Till we're free, till we're free Till we're free, to go… We'll never clear-out: Absorbing as every stain might be.
This is a lovely write. I quite enjoyed it. It's almost musical in its composition.
