The Concrete Jungle

First Stop

Bright red elephant
What sights do you see?
This sprawling city
Lay out at your feet
Markets stalls busy
Nobody’s buying
Voices loud calling
Everyone looking for attention.

Crossing a road
The cars stop for no one
You grab my hand
We fight our way through
Search for a café
Refreshment is needed
Stir dishwater tea with
Plastic spoons.
