Boulevard of the Bizarre

It’s like an alternate universe
One that makes my skin crawl
Though I know it shouldn’t
Still I can’t help my self

Littered with the the dregs of society
And side show carnival freaks
Where the Twilight Zone meets the Dark Side
It’s the Boulevard of the Bizarre

Don’t know where they come from
Where they’re going
Where they’ve been
Diseased crack whores on every corner
Physically deformed driving wheelchairs like cars

Mentally disabled talking to street signs
Blind men hanging onto bus stop posts
Doctors behind the wheels of Mercedes’
Staring blindly straight ahead

Maneuvering to my destination
Trying desperately not to cringe
I know I shouldn’t feel this way
But somehow I can’t help my self

What if one of them were Jesus
Or all in the image of Him
Is this really someone I want to meet
Are these thoughts considered sin

    Interesting questions… when, in reality, I think we’re all two random steps, accidents, devastations away from being the bum on the street.

    You’ve got some vivid images here and the picture of the “Physically deformed driving wheelchairs like cars” is a nice addition. (Nice seems weird to say here, in context, but you know what I mean).

    Good work.

    I’d like to think you’re wrong in your two step away theory, but it may be closer to the truth than not…

    I’d also like to think I’m wrong. 🙂
