THE CITY WE LIVE IN (part 1)

THE CITY WE LIVE IN

UPTOWN
They sit around THE TABLE
Gold-plated table glistering under the  chandelier light
China wares all coated with precious stones
Even their smiles sparkle, with golden braces
Protruding belly gamboling
As their rich laughter turns a rhythm
They mock us!
Oh, they mock the city!
They feast and dine on our revenue,
Pretending to advocate for us.
They know their puppies should fare better than us
We just do not know that,
If not where does the left over go?
Even the expensive wines,
We believe they wash their hands with it
"Let the 'Peasants' be 'Peasants"
They adjourn their meeting
