I Hate Living in the City

Light, light in the night,
Why is it so bright?
I hate living in the city.

It seems at night,
That its daylight,
All the street lamps
And signs are terribly bright,
I hate living in the city.

I feel like it’s the sun
It’s so bright,
I’ve said it twice
And I’ll say it again
I HATE living in the city.


Molly Clark, Age 10
