Singapore River

BY LEE TZU PHENG

The operation was massive;

designed to give new life

to the old lady.

We have cleaned out 

her arteries, removed

detritus and slit, 

created a by-pass

for the old blood.

Now you can hardly tell

her history.

 

We have become

so health-conscious

the heart

can sometimes be troublesome
