WHERE THE CITY FOLK LIVE


At the confluence of the cultures
Where the politics ebb and flow
The tide of humanity crashes
Against their collective soul


The spires of religions
And posters of beliefs
Crush against each other
Through the weave of city streets


Registered colours of commerce
And trade mark tags of youth
Line the valleys of glass and steel
On floor, wall, and roof


The constant clangs of progress
Idle growls of restricted motion
Drift across the green spaces
Invading every moment


The scent of communal sweat
Wafts upon the breeze
From the fires of exotic dishes
And the fumes of commercial needs


Feel free to swim the city
Frolic in the human flow
But be aware of the waves that break
Against your precious soul
