City Lights, City Sounds

We've had an invasion

Blazing horns

Glaring lights

Rocketing music

The city has risen

Farewell to the pastoral

Now it is skyscrapers

Blocking the moon and my stars

Horns and music and billboards

Shouting from angry people

In a hurry

Muggy air inciting it

Even in day there is darkness

It is the city lights

And the city sounds

This poem is about: 
My country
