Hotel Three-Sixty

I see them every night
They go in, they come out
They go in, they come out
Sugar daddies, sugar babies
Sugar mommies, gigolos
Bad boys, call girls
Mistresses, working ladies
And cheating spouses
Residents, visitors
Citizens or Aliens
Main or Wall Streets
Sneakers and Suits
Blue Jeans and Miniskirts
Conservative dresses
Promiscuous adventurers
Blacks and Whites
All types of colors
Shapes and sizes
Multiple identities
Or sexual orientations
I see them always
They go in, they come out
They go in, they come out
Such an endless movement
In our scene city:
Hotel Three-Sixty.

      1. That is true Elyas, I have been so blessed in my life to have had the closest people to me act good night or day….my family. But I have also seen people who were close friends that I thought were one way but when they thought no one was looking did the opposite. I learned to forgive and overlook. We need more Abraham Lincoln’s? What do you think?

      2. God knows what Abraham did, too, at night that we haven’t read in his bios! lol But as a uniting leader, I say let God bless us with more Abrahams! πŸ™‚ In my view, the beauty of human nature is that we all are weak, bound to make mistakes (big or small); most of us, one way or the other, may have double or triple lives secretly (perhaps the difference is how extreme some of us are in our naughtiness lol), and no one is free from faults, including the Imam, the Rabbi, the Pastor, or the Pope. πŸ™‚ However, that is not to discredit people who live a clean, simple and more joyful lifestyle, committed to their partners or principles!

  1. …the swinging door to a sad, secret life.

    Your poem has a cool beat to it. I could feel it as I was reading. I think it would make a neat group reading with different people reading each line. Love the tempo! (maybe I’m the only one who “hears” it!!)

    1. Thank you Judy! πŸ™‚ iLike the swinging door metaphor. Those who pass through it have little choice but become swinging selves.

      I do hear the tempo too. πŸ™‚ I wasn’t sure if readers would notice it, now am glad to know you can hear it! πŸ™‚

  2. great piece Elijah
    That is sadly true. and I think this phenomena of going in and out like that is associated with human development !!!
    I maybe wrong … but old family values seem be going to thin air the more people advances πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Amira! πŸ™‚ I would agree with you partially that the progress we make does affect our behaviors but … most of these behaviors are not new to us, they have been with us as long as we have been around. the going in and out has always been happening, perhaps not as complex as it is today. πŸ™‚
