Displacement

I’m living in a generation

Of massive gentrification,

The foster freeze and local shops

How long til the neighborhood’s lost.

The bar on Highland is now a fancy pub

With lots of hipsters looking smug

I can’t show my face in there.

A house brew, a cider- I wouldn’t dare.

A 6 pack of dos-xx at Joe’s would do the trick.

But losing my city- this makes me sick.

Renovations-or relocations?
