Transition-Hanguk memories (poem)

(more memories of life in South Korea)

Hanguk Street Jamboree

Hawkers howl
So do cats
Bongos prowl
So do rats
Scooters roar
Up and down roads
Hagglers score
Bearing big loads
On rough cobblestone
Drunkards trip
Ears stuck to hand phone
Chatterers quip
Jays scream
From above
Crows stream
Scare off dove

City beat
Piggy meat
Plying drink
Sewage stink
Coffee shop cackle
Plastic wrap crackle
Signs gaudy
Clients bawdy
Bread that goes, "pop!"
Buses that don't stop
Rice and corn puffs
Restaurant buffs
Music too loud
Impatient crowd
Shove and push
Pee behind bush
Odor of fish
Take-out dish

Vendor calls
Illegal stalls
Packed shopping malls

Vehicular roar
Slamming door
Parking war

Traders holler
Exchange for the dollar
Elders in squalor

Ajumas scold
Hot and cold
Tall tales told

Humid heat
Frozen feet
Stormy day
Fierce sun-ray
Damned mogki
Piles of gogki
Smokers' cough
Witness' scoff
Doggies in jacket
Urban racket
Fruit sellers
Neighborhood dwellers
Shuffling flip-flop
Patrolling kid cop
Trash scrapers
Children's capers
Hakseng-i giggle
Contentious higgle
Pedestrian dance
Umbrella lance
Body swings
Commerce sings

Every day a jamboree
Full of grief, ire and glee
Perpetual street party
Bubbling life lived hearty

US President Barack Obama says he fully respects David Camerons approach after Parliament blocked UK involvement, what do you think?
