Through the Cracks

Through the Cracks

In sealed windows
The students peaked
At passing cars.

Modern flashy 
Models, foreign
Convertibles.

Fast exposing 
All that South Beach 
Had to offer.

Class was dismissed,
Car pollution 
Now filled the air.

The kids had failed
To focus on 
The interior,

The future proud
Lessors bound to
Repeat afresh 
Rookie mistakes.

The new teacher
Still deciding
If to stand for
His principals.

It was too late
The cracks had long
Been open to
The heat and dirt.

The solution
Was to shed more 
Light and reach for
The Menorah

For the dealer
Across the street
Had captured the
Imagination.
