On the wet streets

City turns around when no one is looking
Mother stays busy with sewing and cooking
City turns around when the lights are out
Father stays busy with beer and a TV bout
City turns around while the Pastor preaches
President stays busy with politics and speeches
City turns around while children sleep
Shepherds keep busy tending their sheep
City turns around as the sun sets
Loan sharks keep busy collecting their debts
City turns around as music plays aloud
Police keep busy controlling a restless crowd
City turns around....
While we all face the ground...
