By Richard Ivanhoe, HANC Board
I looked around and almost cried
To see the neighborhood so gentrified.
No friends on stoops at the new highrises,
New restaurants with small portions
At extremely high prices;
Bars filled with young white techies
Staring at their devices.
Long white buses block Muni stops,
Homeless still harassed by cops.
Newcomers buying properties with all cash,
Another car drives by with that silly pink mustache.
These changes unfortunately correspond
With all the friends and neighbors who had to move
To Oakland and beyond.
