the foreigners in the city

The streets of Kuala Lumpur
The sound of rush hour drivers
The foot steps of walkers
The colours on the walls and poles

In the day the office workers
The jamming sessions on traffic junctions
The many makes of cars and motorbikes
The faces of chasing wealth

The influx of foreigners
The large numbers in the city
Illegals and legals hang out
The city landscapes have changed

Chow Kit road makeover
The foreigners running the stalls
Why no action on these people?
We all know the answer don't we?

Even in Petaling Street
The foreigners manning the shops
The illegals and legals hang out
How these people sneak in?

The pool of these illegals
The harvest for Isis militants
They don't have police records
The immigration likewise too

The streets of Kuala Lumpur
The city dwellers can complain
These are the pool of people
A political party needs them
