old lady of jackson...

Old Lady of Jackson




More fitting that she go down in flames

Old lady of Jackson

with friends and family

watching on in shock

then be ripped apart

and hauled away in different directions

scattered

Here she lays, ashes to ashes dust to dust

Where she was born she dies


To stand there and see the consumption

how sad it must be

to be the ones who walked her halls

and saw past the smoke and fire to another time

and recalled conversations, Events, people…


good times and bad

There will be some who will rejoice….

They didn’t know you.

You provided for many

and wasn’t Your fault you stood vacant….

It was at the hand of greed

that many had to suffer

As they suffer today

Watching

an Old friend

In her

Final Hours.

So true. It was my life for 29 years. Very sad to see it burn.
