chaos of bangkok

bangkok all action

each square inch in contention

tuk tuks just left in search of a victim

in its place is a vendor, a cyclist, a punter

a biker, his son, the buses, the mayhem.


Round the corner a crook, a waitress, a dealer,

the cook and the conman, the baker, the buddhist

and the tourist ins search of

a belly of sleaze unseen by naive


A taste of pollution, drove to distraction

chinatown frenzy, endless in motion

with the traders, the bankers, the jewellers,

the villian, the sinners, the cynics, divine chaos engine.


frenzy of sounds, of colours and taste

brimming with action, faces and stories

chinatown buzzes, assault on the senses

forget the pollution, it's human condition.
