The street tied and died

With black skins, patches of brown

And sprinkles of white and yellow spots

Staring at windows and buildings as tourists.


The gleaming sunrays flickered like

Microscopic pen-knives darting for heads-

Bald and hairy alike.


The strangers put on hats since

They were new to the sun's aggression

And were also trying to prevent the Marabous

From spitting on their heads.


The noisy and polluting cars grumbled

In and out 'One Way' drives

While the policemen pondered on what to have for lunch.
