War On The Streets

When the government fails its people

When poverty abounds

When  disparity is the norm

When rule of law breaks down

When there is nothing to lose

Then,

Then,

Life descends into the chaotic,

Ensuing conflict dehumanizes

The fight becomes the tenet

Then

so much is lost

The winners gain little
