An Ode to Detroit

  • They don’t know, but home is where I’m going.
    But can I leave this place, a place of so many loves?
    What I love most is the night sky glowing
    And the cutting cold streets warmed by patched gloves.

    Lets put our hands together and repair
    A city that has taken care of me
    During the October baseball affair,
    And the sacked quarterbacks being gutsy.

    But, more free than a lion out of cage?
    At a crossroad in a penalty box.
    I cannot leave my team. Bang bang I’ll rage!
    Nowhere to go but home with these roadblocks.

     
    The road in the mirror, I must back up
    But, home is forward and very close up
