A Jakarta Life

Poem title: A Jakarta Life


I hope one day my capital follows Tokyo
Yet I know there’s much to go

Soccer events turn debacle
Houses drowned in 5-year cycle

Condos adjacent to the slums
Demos unheard by the leaders’ hums

Underpass constructions
Monorail delay
Traffic congestions
Stress out my day…

though it would be nice to have jakarta follows tokyo (or even get close to it), it'd be impossible if the citizens of jakarta don't think like tokyo's. or even attempted to *shrug*

Maybe someday, somehow...Jakarta will be a Megapolitan like Tokyo now. And Tokyo becomes a Gigapolitan...
