times square is dead

times square is dead, oh so dead
 
way deader than before
 
and in my heart i like it so
 
better without stores
 
no ads on lights or tv screens
 
for people walking round
 
to fill their heads with money schemes
 
so beaten to the ground
 
but i find light so beautiful
 
no matter place or time
 
im saddened by the barren grey
 
previously sublime.
