Joe Can't Go Home Again

Joe Can’t Go Home Again

 

By Elton Camp

 

It’s an especially bad feeling

Cherished memories stealing

 

A place one’s lived most of his life

Torn down is like the cut of a knife

 

It isn’t possible anymore

To enter a familiar door

 

Rooms where a man has slept

Are unworthy of being kept

 

Only an empty lot to see

Where home used to be

 

Poor Joe watches with utter dismay

As his long-time home is torn away

 

His emotions it does assail

Demolishing the County Jail
