Placement

It screams unfinished, but they call it work in progress
Clogged crests, called contest, for tests to attest some but flog rest
Bare claw grips on the maws of the oil pressed cogs’ wrest
Call old bogs fresh after promises of fresh swamps seem hard gets

Strands of rebar stick out, planned wings debarred, rote deep scars
Leaky roof so see stars, be warned of dreams that seep the weeping leaps to sleep starved
Steep curve of learning, peep brick bars to sneak past the future wring, squeeze, carve
Gates guarding gut lined with gunny bags marked books oozing with a sheep corpse tarred

It fosters its own barter, just announce us as the on-site sponsor
Guaranteed jobs offered after the dollar conjures offshore yonder
Cement them, bolster preponderance of garnished wages via 50 sorts of cancer
When schooled, trickle down response of “potential squandered” as double entendre
