San Francisco Sidewalks Covered in Syringes

As the opioid epidemic continues to among take its deadly toll on the City by the Bay
Has with accumulated fecal matter, homeless, and people shooting up seen better days
Leading the crusade to rid the planet of plastic straws
Its distribution of free needles displays a misguided flaw
The streets and trash may see a plastic straw reduction
Thinking the city is winning the war on plastic would be a wrong deduction
The sidewalks are strewn with syringes and their plastic caps
No wonder the city has lost its luster and faces a growing bad rap
Crime on the rise, a magnet for illegals, housing costs way too high
Opioid crisis aided by free needles with too many addicts to die
No longer a city to come to wearing a flower in your hair
Like more and more of California a growing nightmare
