A new city

Highways and overhead bridges
Stretched like arteries and veins
From the heart of the city
Branching off to near and far
Like that of a gigantic octopus
Apartments, condours, administration centres, shopping malls and business centres
Rising up like the many organs of a body
Advertisements, neon lights, lights
Scattered like stars of the universe 
Gigantic projects and high towers hovering over
Diminish the prestige of man
Pushing aside the pride of nature
Congesting heavy traffic 
Exert man for patience and tolerance 
To build a new city over the old one 
Is not that simple after all
Too much for a mould 
Will finally cause it suffocated
