The Road to Mirage City

22 Nov

The road to Mirage City

Is not a scenic route,

Hard as nails it lies, and strong

Beneath the weight of Cairo’s travelling throng,

Where once the camels trailed

Serene with eastern calm,

The road to Mirage City

Carries chaos and alarm.

Gigantic trucks and donkey carts,

The business boys on mobile phones

Large families perched on motorbikes

And weary workers crammed inside

Their hellish hot white knuckle ride.

These frantic hoards are transient,

They pass along the way,

But the road to Mirage City

Is a road that’s here to stay.
