The Glamor of Kuala Lumpur: High Status, Gutter Reality

Nightly rain, then the sudden drop. Cold wind, brings about the memories of homelessness and hardship. Kuala Lumpur, a city that seeks an image of prestige. The population, perhaps due to ignorance, allows the weak to falter. A continuation, this cycle, of a class gap that we take for granted; should we care?

Success, rank and wealth. Words that ring with redundancy, at least to me. Unable to come to terms with reality, and the painful truth of poverty, we welcome the rain; and disappear into the night.
