My favourite bus
It runs from Siglap to Plaza Sing
with a superb view of Supertrees, HDBs
and the Singapore Story
a narrative told incessantly.
5 years later
I found myself on the Other side of Singapore
This time from West Coast
to Tuas, Lim Chu Kang and more
For in the fringes of society
one sees the underclass and the underbelly
faceless people toiling tirelessly
in Superdorms, super-diversity and structural inequality.
Appreciate the migrants, they say
else we can’t survive any other way
We’re a multicultural society
based on efficiency and filial piety
where aunties clear trays
and migrants dream on.
