A Poem By Gerald Alan Ney

Gentrification, A Quandary 08/05-06/2018

["The Schumpeterians have all along gloried in capitalism's endless creativity while treating the destructiveness as mostly a matter of the normal costs of doing business." - Social Geographer [Harvey, David (2010). The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism. London: Profile Books. p. 46. ISBN 1-84668-308-4. David Harvey on Creative Destruction]
Lk 15:22-23


Ebb and flow,
The places of man,
A limited span
In form and presence.

~

Expansion, contraction,
Arriving, birthing,
Leaving, dying,
All wind in the grass.

~

The forgotten remembered,
It, for its nature,
Them, removable fixtures,
Renew for me, not thee.

~

Use artist and chef,
Lease till comes its rise
Instruments to cleanse
Out them, unwanted others.

~

The price in lives...
Who shall pay?
But Lazarus shall have his day
In the final court.

- Gerald Alan Ney
