Mississippi Shack

Mississippi Shack
by Edward Gordon

Mississippi shack
Incumbent in grass
Wasn’t it ever new?
Windows out, just half glass
No water, door, electric, or gas.
Tenured spirits watch from within
Cars rushing by with brand new kids,
But try as they might, they can’t comprehend:
When does a hell of a long life end?
