Eviction

The noisy neighborhood now sleeps.
No foot disturbs the silent streets.
The children vanish with their moms or dads
replaced by picket signs with smiling kids.
The gardeners groom the lawns each week,
the sweepers polish the city’s streets.
The primped up houses beckon newly-weds
to settle down and start new families.
