My Like of The Wire

How am I able
To watch The Wire
Year after year
Still getting the pangs of anxiousness
With every turn in the plot
Why do I identify with the characters
Who wrestle with demons of
Ego,
Power, or
Futility
Is it because there are life truths
To the dramatic rendering
Of drug dealing in Baltimore

Maybe

Mostly, though,
The show shows us
In a critical light
That is both
Enlightening and entertaining

I never tire of the lessons
