Over This Wall

Over this wall
is a shopping centre
aircon and security guards
thousands of people
over this wall

Over the wall
is a gasoline station
aircon and fancy cars
thousands of drivers
over the wall

Over that wall
is a man washing his t-shirt in a puddle
near a family on cardboard
behind thousands
over that wall
