The city


The green fields disappeared,
The landscape changed somewhere,
And that famed skyline appeared
Suddenly out of nowhere.

The squalor began to grow,
I could see people all around,
The din slowly increased, and
Tranquility was nowhere to be found

The crowds then swelled,
And, all seemed to be in hurry,
But all I could see on their face,
Was resignation and worries.

The city arrived, said the signboard
But what it said not
Was, welcome to the jungle,
Of lifeless concrete and rot.
