Silly fast cars sing bad songs on Hamdan Street.
Songs that resonate,
not only with materialism and arrogance,
but with youth
and the sense of going somewhere
– albeit unknown.
Jay walkers jump back
from unwise attempts to cross the road.
Their hearts racing
in a profound but weak rhythm.
The Maseratis and Mercedes compete more mercilessly.
After all –
Metal money trumps flesh.
