As I Died on the Sidewalk

As I Died on the Sidewalk

A Poem by Katherine Enma Pineapple

Soon to be revised ;D

I was dying on the sidewalk
Painting my greatest tragedy
With blood and pavement- canvass
People standing overhead
"Oh dear, what a pitiful fellow."
Watching me die before their
Very, sympathetic eyes

I was dying on the sidewalk
Eying the people looking at me
Their mouth agape
Watching the angel of death
Take me away
I got on climbed to his arms
Staring at my body
And at the crowd
I said to myself with my eyes
Very, sympathetic eyes
"What pitiful people."

Author's Note

Katherine Enma Pineapple
Well I wrote this for a lot of reasons, the greatest of what influenced me was the news story of a tricycle driver shot by a man riding in tandem and a group of people were just watching him, watching him die before their very eyes.

Another is a social issue about my country: how people can react and ONLY react. They CAN'T ACT.
