Night Owls ( Protitutes are Honest people.)

Night Owls.. (Prostitutes and Honest people)

Owls being locked up in a cold iron cage,
taken on a money spinning Hollywood tour.
People quite rightly filled with disgust and rage,
still they show no love for a downtown whore.

Dangerous streets deadly dirt filled syringes,
got to shoot as her body starts feeling bad.
On a pimps integrity her life now hinges,
she don’t care about being happy or sad.

What do we do, we make the correct noises,
stick the dealers in jail put whores in rehab.
We won’t pay, they made their life choices,
things are getting tight my livings really drab.

I got two cars, split screen tv, and a vacation,
every month I got to pay the same greedy man.
I’m like those girls, my addiction is inflation,
prostitutions getting sold every where it can.

What do you mean our
lives may soon converge,
that the pimp is making money
from the man who rents my cars.
The split screen tv dealer is in
tight with a hotel concierge, all
the johns have a need and believe
their dealing with the stars.

Those girls could be weaned
then taken off the street, make
their job legal giving them a
The johns with their ladies could
have safety and comfort when
they meet, giving all the night Owls
a voice.

Lets be honest when we say all
creatures should be free, we can
make it that way if we just start
by looking hard at you and me.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Just saw the story about the owls, started thinking we're all on the man's hook.
Editing stage: 


a beast of prey
but its the talons that the owl uses
like all other birds
Wisdom..its eyes..its "perception"
and "Stealth" that make it distinct


other countries systems are different
like working without a union
Like buying a special deal car
a television that fell off the back
of a truck

parellelisms are pretty
there....this is the day
and this is the night

Ilike the use of owls
a lot of people are
pretty thin..
or young or made up
to accentuate the eyes
and its true about cycling
them through
and people actually get
out of the loop of that

is what it is
it consumes
and its dependent
on this


Thank You!

Thank you Esker, Regards Roscoe...

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

I could sense your outrage, disgust as too the helplessness in these verses. Apparently you have given vent to those feelings by writing almost extempore.
