Listen to the silent streets,
Murmuring echoes of a glorious past.
Streets leading to prosperity,
All disappeared into private accounts.

 

 
Once crowned and adorned with jewels,
Now flooded with lies and fools.
Flowers blossomed throughout our past,
Our future foresees the driest desert.
 

 

From greats to unknown heroes,
All part of a distant memory.
Jungles of hypocrisy cover the land,
Oceans of wealth diminished into sand.
