Lo! The pickpocket
I Watch from the Sideline



An entry in The Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

The change in humanity
The filth in bureaucracy
Stolen beauty
And captive wealth
Floats in the cloud of corruption

Deteriorated infrastructure
Shortage supplies
Infesting inflation
And accelerating city crimes
Floats in the cloud of corruption

Cries of injustice
Deprived inheritance
Prolonged solutions
And impediment in balance
Floats in the cloud of corruption
