Hanoi an (unfinished) poem

Hanoi: A place like no other

A place you can't watch Big Brother

A city with a beautiful lake

that makes you feel so awake


A place you can hear Big Brother

speakers tell you be a good mother

Where Lenin looks over a park

Are the people still in the dark?



A city without a McDonalds

worth more than a million emeralds

the yellow dogs stop the traffic

at times it seems pornographic



Hanoi: A difficult city to live

where the people never forgive

Where Confucius has a great say

remember beating China, the USA?


Where boys fly around on bikes

Impaling themselves on spikes

killing eleven people a day

leaves families in disarray


A beautiful city to spend time

A city almost without crime

Hanoi is a home from home

Where you wanna write a poem



Needs a bit more work, run out of time...

Any suggestions welcome...

Yes, I agree with you, most VNese people live in the dark. Their view field is eclised by Communist hand!
