City Sneaker and Tree Creeper  
city sneaker and tree creeper
they never can agree
city creeper and tree sneaker
they never can agree

the buildings line
my nightly stroll
and blaze a public trailing
my happy feet
they pound the street
and echo modern dwelling

designer's heels
corrode my toes
here goes a reddened swelling
the cracks zigzag
the building walls
as vigils to overcrowding

but swollen feet
don't make me wink
instead they send me reeling

city sneaker and tree creeper
they never can agree
city creeper and tree sneaker
they never can agree

the branches paw
the burning sky
a fire into enlightenment
a private show
of the Great unknown
a sample of humble delightment

the farmer's rake
blisters my hands
here grows a hard-earned marking
then night unfolds
my palms to rest
reluctant in their hiding

man-made light blind
to nature's twilight
an endless electric ceiling

city sneaker and tree creeper
they never can agree
city creeper and tree sneaker
they never can agree

city sleeper and day creeper, they never can agree.
the first part is the point of view of the loyal city dweller, the second is from the happily dwelling country folk. beauty's all in the eye of the beholder.
