"A Child's Playground"

i cant play in my own backyard
because i have no grass to play in
and too many needles and pins
that mom said will prick me
and give me diseases...
one of these days
i will look outside my window
and the mice will not be there
or all those big men who hurt all the women
...not sure if they are women,
BUT, there are
mini hallways in my backyard
where creepers creep
night walkers try to dream
and insomnia tries to rob sleep
where children's lost toys are for the ghetto to keep
i cant play in my own backyard
this becomes a young child's mind scarred
