Cambridge Chimes

Cambridge Chimes

For whom do the bells toll?
A new generation,
making their exodus
from province and providence
to a new promised land

of late night shopping,
cars and careers,
traffic jams and tears,

and loss at the realization
that this ‘land of milk and honey’
is not all it’s cracked up to be.
