Almost a decade I’ve lived in this city,

I remember the first days, nothing existed,

Now that it’s all built, you’ve been exalted,

Declared greatest, reputed, distinguished,

But to me you’ve always been a scam,

I know, the only thing that hasn’t changed,

Is your hostility, ever-present, years later,

And unchanging, but to others you’re,

A spectacle but you cannot fool me.
